Clear Creek River - Golden, Colorado

Clear Creek History Park

Get outside and see how Colorado’s early settlers worked and played in the late 1800s at Pioneer Village. The Park is ideally located along Clear Creek in downtown Golden. Their outdoor setting re-creates the look and feel of a late 1800s mountain ranch complete with gardens, a working blacksmith shop, schoolhouse and chicken coop (chickens included)!

The Astor House Museum

Clear Creek History Park

Built in 1867 when Golden was the territorial capital, the Astor House is still a major tourist attraction in Golden today! It stayed in continuous operation as a boarding and rooming house until 1971, serving legislators, miners, and students. With one of the first bathtubs in town, the Astor House also attracted trail-dusted visitors willing to pay 25 cents for a hot bath. Visit the Astor House's Website...

 

 

 

 

Golden City Brewery

The Beer Garden at Golden City Brewery

Many of our customers like to eat their lunch at Golden City Brewery! GCB was founded in 1993 by two geologists, Charlie & Janine Sturdavant. They filled the old machine shop behind their historic Golden home with used dairy tanks and Charlie began brewing German-style ales. Since that time, the operation has expanded at the same location (still their home). The carriage house has become the tasting room, the backyard is the beer garden. All of the old equipment has been replaced with real beer fermenters and a slightly used gas-fired kettle. The brewery still produces those now legendary Red & Pale Ales, in addition to a few other refreshing beers. Visit GCB's Website...
