Georgetown in Clear Creek County, Colorado — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Star Hook and Ladder Building 1886
Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic Landmark District
By the 1960s, the building had fallen into a state of disrepair, and the local melodrama company undertook its restoration – they returned the bell and painstakingly reconstructed the fire company’s shield. For a while, the theater group used the upstairs room for their performances. Today the building serves as the Town Hall.
Erected 2007 by Town of Georgetown and Historic Georgetown, Inc.
