A Wagon Ride Through Golden History - Photo by Chris Davell - Click to enlarge

My daughter Margaret and I will be offering a Wagon Ride Through History this Friday at noon. Margaret—with her Clydesdales, Wallace and Todd—will drive us through Golden's oldest commercial and residential neighborhoods while I tell the tales of Golden's past.
