The Hamill House tour was part of a recreational trip package we participated in from Aurora, Colorado. The main reason for the trip was to attend the Christmas Fair taking place throughout town, but we also got tickets to tour the Hotel de Paris and the Hamill House. As with the Hotel de Paris, the tour guides brought the place... More

We were actually very lucky as my nephews wife works there and she was able to give us a private tour. What a great old house with a lot of history behind it. A must see when visiting historic Georgetown.

A very well maintained example of a wealthy 19th century miner's residence. The property is maintained by Historic Georgetown, Inc. and they do a wonderful job with all of their properties.

See inside the large home of a wealthy 1800's Georgetown mine owner. Mostly original furnishings. There are steps up to the second floor.

Great for the grandkids, and the lawns are pleasant - would love to have a greenhouse room like in this old house

The young man who gave us a tour brought a passion and interest for the house and the community in the 19th century. He really helped us to understand similarities and differences between then and now. He is a history major at university and it shows! Beautifully restored- Georgetown should be proud!

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of this silver magnate's luxurious 1800's home. Quite plush for its day, with many authentic pieces and other pieces of the period. The tour guide was superb and gave "enough" information...not so much you became bored, but enough to prompt a few questions. I was allowed to take pics, which nowadays is not always the... More

We toured the Hamill House after our rail ride on the Loop. It was a wonderful day, even for the children! The Museum offers a children's tour, for FREE, and the children received a coupon for free ice cream cones from on of the wonderful ice cream shops downtown. What a bonus! Plus, we were able to purchase a special... More
