Who We Are...
Historic Georgetown Inc. (HGI) is a non-profit organization created to initiate, encourage, and integrate efforts to preserve the rich heritage and natural viewsheds of the Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic Landmark District as well as interpret the spirit of Georgetown's mining past. 

How Does Historic Georgetown Operate?
The property, funds, policies and affairs of Historic Georgetown are administered by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Executive Director provides day-to-day management. Part time staff and volunteers serve as guides and maintenance personnel. The dedication of the Board, Volunteers, and full & part-time staff is key to a smooth-running organization.

The operating and maintenance budget of Historic Georgetown gains income from membership dues, museum admissions, special events, shop sales, grants and donations. Less than 5% of our operating budget comes from government sources. We invite you to join us in our efforts to preserve one of a vanishing number of historic towns in the Rocky Mountain West.

HGI is currently in the middle of a Structural Assessment on the Hamill House, provided for by a grant from the State Historical Fund.  When completed, we will have an in-depth list of needed repairs.  At that time, HGI intends to pursue further grants as well as donations from private donors to assist in this vital project.  We are dedicated to the goal of restoring this valued historic jewel for the enjoyment and education of future generations.
This summer, 
HGI hosted several fundraisers with this specific goal in mind.
