Brown House


Address: 507 16th St., Golden 80401

The two-story house has a vernacular wood frame and side gable and was built in 1900. It is significant as a representative of Golden's historic architecture, as reflected in its steeply pitched roof, clapboard siding, plain facade, and double-hung windows. One of the early owners of the house was Emma D. Brown, who came to Golden in 1888 from Barry, Illinois, and operated a small store in the 1100 block of Washington Avenue. The Brown family continued to own the property until 1933, when Jay C. and Dora Bradley obtained the house. Bradley was a kiln setter at the Coors Porcelain Company. The Bradleys sold the house in 1952.
