Golden, CO Real Estate

 

Golden truly has everything: from breathtaking views to a friendly, hometown atmosphere and a variety of work and recreational opportunities. Known as the “Gateway to the West,” Golden began as a gold mining community that transformed into a railroad hub as the Colorado Central Railroad became the first to access the Rockies through the city. Since then, Golden has become home to coal miners, the Coors Brewery, the Colorado School of Mines, and a thriving residential community.


Golden’s recreational opportunities range from thrilling outdoor adventures to explorations of Golden’s rich history in its many museums. With over 400 miles of open space and 24 miles of interconnected trails, outdoor fun abounds. Cyclists enjoy Golden Bike Park, a trail system built exclusively for mountain bikers, featuring a gravity-fed flow park and obstacles for cyclists of all levels. Other activities include a day at the local Splash Water Park, viewing 100-million year old dinosaur tracks, golfing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and so much more!


Home to more than 20,000 residents, Golden offers a range of housing choices. The city, nestled against the mountains, lies just 15 miles from Denver. Likewise, Golden is a perfect home for avid skiers and snowboarders, with nearby I-70 offering access to Colorado’s major ski resorts.

History

 

Gold discoveries in local Clear Creak brought the first settlers to Golden in the mid-1850s. The area became a natural place for supplies to be sold as miners headed into nearby mountains in hopes of finding riches. The city quickly evolved as successful agricultural, industrial and coal mining opportunities developed. The Colorado Central Railroad became the first to access the mountains through the city. The Coors Brewery opened in 1873, at the banks of Clear Creek and is now the largest brewing plant in the world.

In the 1870s, the Colorado School of Mines opened its doors, appealing to engineering and science students and creating an intellectual hub in an industrial city. Since then, the National Earthquake Information Center and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory have exemplified Golden as an intellectual, progressive and innovative center.

The twentieth century brought population booms as the city developed new subdivisions and modernized infrastructure. Today, Golden continues to thrive as a place for people to live and work with a friendly, small town feel.
