Caption: A Golden Community panel
Additional Description: Captions: (bottom left) As more families arrived, Bill Schuyler, and Grandpa Ruble built Golden's church, and only then built the family home. The Ruble priorities were clear: faith and family came first. As long as the Rubles lived here, Golden had not saloons. It you wanted to "tip a few," you had to walk over the hill to Pacer.; (bottom center) "I loved to attend school in the new schoolhouse, and I seldom missed a day ... Most of the school teachers boarded at our house, so we got to known them real well." - Bernice Elda Ruble; (top center) At its height between 1900 and 1910, Golden spread across serval acres. At its center stood the church, and on its right, the Rubles' beautiful fruit-filled orchard.; (upper right) You were never a stranger in Golden. Two and three generations of families worked, prayed, and played together. Mable McIntosh, seen here in 1911 smelling the roses, was postmasters of Golden.
