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 Library
We are pleased to announce that HGI has received a second grant from the Colorado State Historic Fund to proceed with some much needed structural repair work in the Library.
HGI will fundraise matching monies for the grant and work will continue throughout 2018. To donate to the restoration project or for more ways to get involved, call our office at 303-569-2840. Our entire Hamill House restoration will be actively going on for a few more years. Please come and visit and learn about the master craftsmen who are doing the project.
On December 2nd December 8th and December 15th, we will have Christmas Events in the house, come and join us for a Victorian Christmas.
