The City of Golden is truly a landmark in and of itself. Its history boasts in being a cornerstone for the development of the entire Midwestern territory during the spark of the Gold Rush. Today, Golden continues to carry on its historic character, and is home to more than 18,000 people. Although the city supports a fair amount of small shops and businesses, The Coors Brewing Company factory and headquarters reside just outside of downtown Golden. The city is also home to some of the finest Denver Metro views in the state, and the Clear Creek River runs directly through Downtown Golden!
Although Golden is a smaller community, its real estate inventory is easily competitive with that of its neighboring communities. Newer developments have recently become popular surrounding the Downtown area of the city, while a large portion of the single family housing sits on its historical roots.
