Washington Avenue- 1890  ~~ (

Golden is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, only fifteen minutes from Denver.
Golden was founded during the gold rush of 1859, but gold seekers were not its first inhabitants. The area had been
frequented by the Ute, Arapaho, and Cheyenne tribes, as well as early trappers Louis Vasquez and Rufus Sage. Most
sources agree that the town was named for settler Tom Golden, one of the early gulch miners who panned gold in the
valley of Clear Creek.
