Kimball House


Address: 1123 12th St., Golden, 80419

Built in 1877, this two-story brick house with eight rooms remained with the Kimball family for more than forty five years. Until 1977, it occupied two full lots. The original owner, George K. Kimball, first came to Colorado in 1860 for the mining and milling in Central City. He then moved to Golden to work as a passenger conductor and freight agent for the Colorado Central Railroad. Kimball eventually was Golden postmaster, Golden city clerk, and Jefferson County Commissioner. He also served on the board of the State Industrial School.
