About Georgetown

 The historic town of Georgetown is part of Clear Creek county located a mere 50 minutes west of Denver. It was a former silver mining camp along Clear Creek in the Front Range Rocky Mountains. Georgetown was established in 1859 during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush, during this era it grew to become the third-largest town in Colorado. Currently, over 1,000 residents call this place home and on the weekends this amount grows immensely as visitors are drawn to this quaint Colorado mountain town. Georgetown’s historic sixth street offers great shopping, restaurants, bars and sightseeing, for those who want to get away from the city bustle. Visitors can also enjoy many attractions such as the Royal Gorge Route railroad (formerly known as the Georgetown Loop Railroad) and various museums displaying Georgetown’s rich mining traditions.
