Golden City Luxury Real Estate
Situated 10 minutes away from Arvada City, Golden is the county seat of Jefferson County. It is situated at the Front Range of the Rockies, nestled alongside Clear Creek. Around 18,867 people live in the city as of the 2010 census. It is historically known as one of Denver’s primary sources of gold during the gold rush of the 1860s.
Golden was one of the first settlements to be established after the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush, named after Georgia prospector Thomas L. Golden. From 1860 to 1861, it was the seat of the provisional Territory of Jefferson, and also served as the capital of the Territory of Colorado up until 1867 when the seat was moved to newly-established Denver.
Growth continued in the budding city as industries came in thanks to the construction of a new set of rail lines. Many top-level schools would also be established in the area later on. This growth would continue for many years until hitting a sudden slowdown in the 1980s. The city has since recovered from the slump, and is as bustling as ever.
