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.

Pat, our guide, did an excellent job. The house is wonderful, restored to period with many pieces original to the house. Family history is extensive, and the grounds are wonderful. The only down side was not being able to take pictures inside the house.

This is a nicely restored Victorian house in the cute little town of Georgetown. If you're visiting Georgetown for one of their seasonal festivals or just to ride the train, I highly recommend a stop in the Hamill House. The architecture is beautiful, and it's interesting to learn about life in the mountains back when Georgetown was just a little... More

The staff of Historic Georgetown, Inc. are doing a wonderful job of preserving this unique part of their community's history. Earlier this year, staff discovered a structural problem that could threaten the integrity of the home. They have done a great job of stabilizing the problem at a very early stage and are working carefully to correct the problem without... More

We were advised to visit Georgetown whilst in Colorado as it has a connection to Liverpool! As we walked down the street to thsi house, it was great to get the feeling of old America. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to take part in a tour of the house as the last tour had already begun but go see... More

Opened in 2004 but we had never been there. Interesting historical outdoor display about the Eisenhower Johnson tunnels. Inside several displays of period pieces like China setting. The usual maps and brochures. Nice clean restrooms. Lots of parking and a picnic area with a dog walk. Interesting shop for knick knacks

Lovely place. Must see... I found the children room quite creepy but I guess that was a thing back then... The ladies that give the tour definitely know the house history!

Very nice well maintained older estate with interesting memorabilia, especially in our case, a display of heirloom seeds for sale. Even though the museum was closed on the day we were in Georgetown, a local from a gift shop offered to call and see if we could be accommodated and were invited up with directions on how to get on...

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 was trying to figure out what to say, like "this is the kitchen"... okay.... so... More

The Hamill House was recommended to us by the Visitor Information Center we found as we entered Georgetown. The Center called and the Hamill House was opened just for us. They are usually closed in the winter. We had an extremely private tour. The history of the house was most interesting. The staff member who showed us around was excited... More
