At its peak, the 1850s mining town of Golden, now a ghost town, was home to 100 people and served as a hub for many others who worked the land in more remote locations. Golden was distinguished by its lack of saloons in the town center, its two active churches and the large orchard established by its founding families. Today, visitors can explore the remaining settlements perched above the valley where miners once toiled.
Golden's remains include four buildings: a church, a former residence, a shed and a structure that once housed a post office and store. The entire property is in the National Register of Historic Properties.
