Overview

This Country Gothic Revival home originally belonged to silver baron William Arthur Hamill. Hamill greatly expanded a small Rocky Mountain home into a grand display of Georgetown's wealth in the latter part of the 19th century. We are open May (Memorial Day) through September (Labor Day). Call for a private appointment.

The house was wonderful. It was sadly closed when we were there but we looked in the windows and the outside was so pretty. I love houses like this and could just have walked right in and lived there. The sunroom was really something.

The house is beautiful and being that I grew up in the area I have been on the tour before. It was a good thing, since I knew more about the house and the Hamills than the tour guide. There was often silence as he...More
