Gold Hill Historic District

Boulder County

Organized in 1859, Gold Hill was one of Colorado’s earliest mining camps and remains an excellent example of the pattern of settlement and community development within the 19th century metal mining communities of Boulder County.

Several examples of Pioneer Log construction remain intact.  After 1900, few precious metal ores were recovered in Gold Hill, and the local economy shifted toward tourism during the first decades of the 20th century.  The property is associated with the Metal Mining and Tourist Era Resources of Boulder County and Mining Industry in Colorado Multiple Property Submissions.
