Golden Landmarks Association, Inc. is a nonprofit/volunteer organization that works to preserve the structures and artifacts of historic significance in the Golden area. Viewings of the Golden-area photographs and tours are available by appointment. Check the website for the most current restoration project and volunteer opportunities. Founded in 1971 and incorporated in 1972, the Golden Landmarks Association is one of the oldest non-profit historic preservation organizations in Colorado. Their purpose is to preserve the rich and colorful history of Golden, Colorado, an original Gold Rush town of 1859 which blossomed into an industrial mecca and matured into the unique small town it is today. The work of Golden Landmarks has ranged from American Indian remains which are thousands of years old to modernistic landmarks of the recent past. For over 40 years Golden Landmarks has worked to preserve Golden area landmarks. They began through a successful effort to convince Goldenites to vote to save the Astor House hotel in 1972. From there they have gone on to help save other important landmarks such as the Burgess House, Guy Hill School, Brickyard House and more. Golden Landmarks Association, Inc. has also started, helped start or taken over annual events of the Golden community, including Olde Golden Christmas, Golden Historic House Tour, and Living Landmarks Dinner. They have also helped designate area landmarks and historic districts.
