Clear Creek also divided Golden along cultural lines. The poor and immigrant families generally lived on the north side of Clear Creek. The more affluent as well as the middle classes generally lived on the south side. Industries usually congregated to the north while merchants set up shop on the south. Each neighborhood had its own school, and the student rivalry between north and south was fierce. As time passed, the differences between north and south have faded.
