In 1872 he was elected to the Colorado Territorial Legislature where he introduced a bill for the Colorado School of Mines and later donated the land for the Golden Cemetery. It was during his term in the legislature that he bought the house at 1105 12th Street in 1874. During the 1930s Golden High School principal Hugh Beers lived here.
