About the event
Garrett Briggs is no longer able to present at IAD 2022 due to extenuating circumstances. Because of this last-minute cancellation, Jessica Ericson and Jasmine Saxon, co-owners of Community Connections, LLC, will be filling in with a presentation on the Astor House in Golden, Colorado. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you and sincerely thank you for your understanding. Below is a short description on the presentation.
Seth Lake was a well-known entrepreneur who established the Astor House hotel in Golden, Colorado, in 1867 to capitalize on the growth from the mining and railroad industry. In the 1970s, the building was saved from destruction and transformed into a museum. Since then, the building has needed rehabilitation work and is now in the process of reconstruction. This project has brought a variety of partners together from the community to explore more deeply the stories of the Astor House. To make this information accessible to the public, Foothills Art Center contracted Community Connections LLC to organize public tours of the archaeological excavations during ARTSWEEK Golden in the summer of
2021. The Astor House has experienced many changes over the last couple hundred years but continues a legacy of connection among community members. This presentation will show how this building continues to remain an important piece of Golden’s history and identity.
