Golden had a variety of businesses and industries in operation during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Among these were four flour mills-the Rock Mill, the Brick Mill, the Binder Mill, and the Golden Mill. Mill races, or ditches dug from Clear Creek channeled water to turn grinding wheels like this one for the mills to operate. Golden's mills served the surrounding communities for nearly 100 years.

This stone is thought to be the grinding wheel from the Rock Flour Mill, donated by the Barber Family.
