Welcome to the Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic Landmark District (NHLD). Silver Queen Walking Tours is proud to share the legacy of the Old West’s colorful narrative which is populated by stories the likes of Hotel De Paris French proprietor Louis Dupuy, freed slave turned wild west entrepreneur Aunt Clara and Silver Baron William Arthur Hamill of Hamill House Museum fame.
Designated NHLD status on November 13, 1966, Georgetown boasts over 200 protected historic buildings —artifacts of the bustling nineteenth century mining days. It hardly seems fair to keep these stories all to ourselves! Which is why Silver Queen Walking Tours was born. We provide specially curated guided historic walking tours through Georgetown, focusing on the lively stories of it’s people and the role they played in weaving the legacy of our historic past.
