Get Ready for Some FUN…iculars That Is
Golden has always been a popular destination for day trips, but do you know the history of the city’s rail lines that helped contribute to its popularity? Golden author Barb Warden will discuss two of the most spectacular funicular railways built in the early 20th century, why these rail lines were established in Golden and why they disappeared in a few short years.
She will also discuss how streetcar service from Denver contributed to Golden's tourism industry and how light rail may entice a new generation of visitors.
Ms. Warden will be signing her book The Funiculars of Golden Colorado following the program, and books will be available for purchase.
