If you were ever driving to Golden along the Coors highway and wondering where the 22-room Coors family mansion was located amongst all of the massive brewery buildings, here is sits in the center of this photo, one third up from the bottom of the pic (click to enlarge).
Construction was started in the late 1800s and at one point it was
moved several hundred feet to make room for more brewery.
When it was first settled, this was one of the most beautiful spots
in the region, nestled in between two mesas along Clear Creek.
Golden is still quite beautiful today.

Walker Mansion Ruins
Ruins of Walker Mansion atop Mt. Falcon in Morrison.
Designed by J.B. Benedict 1909, struck by lightning and
burned to the ground 1918.
John Brisben Walker owned 4,000 acres in the Morrison area,
including Mt. Falcon and Red Rocks.
Walker once bought the Stanley Steamer steam car business
and even raced Locomobiles atop Mt. Falcon.
Architect Jacques Benois Benedict not only designed many homes and business buildings around Denver, but also many of the stone houses and structures you see all over the Front Range.
