dc.descriptionNo. 96. Golden City is a thriving and prosperous town, and rapidly becoming a railroad center. It is situated in the valley between the Table mountain and the foot of the mountain chain, at an elevation of 5882 feet above the sea. Table mountain rises 588 feet above the stream that flows at its base. The lower portion is of stratified rock of the tertiary period, and is crowned with a deep overflow of basaltic lava which has been eroded, leaving Table mountain and Castle Rock as here seen--Verso.

dc.description.abstractStereopair of Golden City, which was probably taken in the 1870s, showing the North Side neighborhood along Clear Creek with Castle Rock in the background. Prospectors responding to reports of placer gold up Clear Creek Canyon in 1859 often had to camp at the base of the foothills to provision and outfit themselves for travel in the mountains. Golden City was founded in 1859 to supply, house and entertain these prospectors. By the end of 1859 there were almost 800 people living in Golden City. During the 1860s and 1870s a number of industries were established in the town, agriculture expanded, and Golden became the supply center for the mining towns in the mountains to the west. A rail line was constructed from Golden up Clear Creek Canyon to the mining towns in the 1870s, transporting supplies to the towns and ore to be processed at the smelters in Golden and parts east.
