Historic Georgetown, Inc... is "Building the Future by Restoring  the Past"​​

       On May 7,1970, the Georgetown Society, later known as Georgetown Historical Society and now as Historic Georgetown Inc. was incorporated. Thus the journey began. From the start HGI was as much of a preservation agency as a traditional historical society. A first project was assistance to the Town of Georgetown in the passage of Colorado’s first town-wide historic preservation ordinance that provided for the design review that continues today. 

       The years have seen HGI’s acquisition and preservation of historic structures, conservation of the setting through open lands, promotion of heritage tourism, cultural and fundraising events, publications, educational courses and a constant, and sometimes boisterous, commitment to the integrity of the Landmark District. Today, HGI continues in its commitment to historic preservation through community education programs, restoration projects, historical property conservation movements, and much more.

​​Restoration work... in the Hamill House

We are pleased to announce that HGI has applied for a  third grant from the Colorado State Historic Fund to proceed with some much needed repair work on the roof and the conservatory.  HGI will continue to fund raise for matching monies for the grant.  We will keep you updated on the status of our application. To donate to the restoration project go to the Support button / Donations. . or for more ways to get involved or donate directly, call our office at 303-569-2840.
