What Does Membership in Historic Georgetown Mean?

Membership in Historic Georgetown Inc. means you become a voting member of the nonprofit, much like a shareholder in a corporation. Members are entitled to vote at our annual meeting on various proposals and the election of directors.

Our members are interested in preserving not only the history of the 19th century American West, but also the small-town character of Georgetown, Colorado. Although our current population is about 1,100 people, Georgetown has become a "home town" to thousands throughout the United States and the world who do not reside here.

Historic Georgetown members provide an essential part of the funding and the encouragement necessary to continue our efforts to maintain and preserve our properties, mining heritage, and open lands. Membership dues provide essential revenue to help with day to day expenses as well as help fund larger projects, such as the restoration and repair of our houses and museums.

Membership Levels and Benefits

As a community, we are in a period where so many choices about our future rely on how we interpret our past. We have an ambitious mission: to preserve and encourage the preservation of historic buildings, objects, sites and areas relating to the history of Georgetown Colorado; to promote an awareness of and respect for all that is historically and architecturally significant about Georgetown; to encourage the appropriate management and conservation of the natural setting of Georgetown; and, through these efforts, to keep alive and intact, for the enrichment of present and future generations, the inherited character and charm and beauty of Georgetown and its unique role in the development of the Rocky Mountain West of the United States of America. We can’t do it alone.

Whether you are interested in purchasing a membership, renewing your membership, or supplementing your life membership, please review the newly revised Historic Georgetown, Inc. memberships below. We hope that you will join in our mission. We value your SUPPORT...

Donate/Renew as we are a charitable 501(c)3 organization, we have many goals for the next few years. Paramount is the RESTORATION of The Hamill House. If you live in Georgetown, or in Colorado, you may be a visitor... we welcome your generous tax-deductible support. Whatever level, you will become apart of our team!
