Georgetown was one of the last bastions of civilization before encountering the Continental Divide. You will find abundant and well-preserved examples of buildings and mining structures from the Colorado Silver Boom. Visitors to Georgetown included sharpshooter Annie Oakley and showman Buffalo Bill Cody, and our list of famous residents includes Poker Alice and madam and brothel keeper Mattie Silks.
Today, Georgetown is a delightful Victorian village that offers quaint shops, historical museums, dignified churches, cozy restaurants, and welcoming bars. You will come across historic parks, a Victorian-themed playground, a dog park, and a seasonal ice skating rink.
Colorado means "colored red," and our warm red sandstone sidewalks are a great example of how the state received its name. The historic business district is easy to navigate using these handsome paved walks, which flank many of our pleasant streets. Benches found outside our establishments offer opportunities to admire breath-taking views of our majestic mountains, named Leavenworth, Saxon, Sunrise, Griffith, and Alpine.
