Golden Photos

Located west of Denver on the front range of the Rockies, Golden Colorado is the home of the Coor's breweries. The town served as Colorado's capital from 1862-7. The local historical society runs an open air museum in town called Clear Creek History Park & Astor House Museum, originally built as a hotel for Colorado's legislators before the Capital moved to nearby Denver.
