Georgetown in Clear Creek County, Colorado — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Old County Courthouse, 1868
Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic Landmark District
In 1874, the building became the “temporary” home of the county offices and court. Funds were finally secured for a new courthouse a century later, in 1975.
The building originally stood across the street on the site of today’s courthouse. The Georgetown Community Center, Ltd., raised funds to move the old structure to this location, thereby saving it from demolition. Today visitors are welcomed from the old county clerk’s cage, still in its original position in the front room.
