"Georgetown....an old mining town west of Denver" Top 5 Page for this destination Georgetown by Jeannette1
Georgetown Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 88 photos
Georgetown is a beautiful old silver mining town which was in 1870 the third largest city in Colorado.
Today it only has about 1088 inhabitants.
It's a charming town and I would highly recommend a visit for anyone interested in the "old west" history.
Unlike many other mining towns, Georgetown was never destroyed by fire. It still has about 200 original buildings still standing in the historical district (6th Street).
- Pros:charming, laid-back atmosphere, beautiful original buildings, interesting museum(Hotel de Paris)
- Cons:I imagine it gets cold in the winter months
- In a nutshell:Don't miss visiting Georgetown if you are interested in history
