Comma-shaped Georgetown's survival was a big question mark for much of the 20th century. Today, the town no longer seems in danger of having the final period placed on its history. George and David Griffith discovered only $500 worth of gold in Clear Creek in 1859, but they stuck around and founded George's Town. After 1864's huge silver strike, newcomers flooded in, settling across the creek in the new Elizabethtown, named for George's sister-in-law. When a post office was granted in 1866, the two camps united as Georgetown. The town was incorporated in 1868 and, by 1876, was known as the "Silver Queen of the Rockies," the state's third-largest town. The 1893 silver crash plunged Georgetown into a 70-year dark age, from which it did not emerge until its designation as a historical landmark district. Georgetown thrives now on tourists enjoying its preserved Victorian splendor and the Georgetown Loop Historic Mining District and Railroad Park.
