About Breckenridge History

OUR MISSION

Breckenridge History enhances our community’s future by discovering, preserving, and sharing our diverse and extraordinary history.

OUR VISION

Breckenridge History is a community-supported, nationally recognized leader in local historic preservation, historical interpretation, and tourism.

Breckenridge History (originally the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance) was established in 2006 by the Town of Breckenridge to manage town historic assets, execute historic preservation projects, curate exhibits, and share the history of our community through museums, guided tours, and other public events and programs. In 2015, Breckenridge History opened its archives room to serve as both a repository of one-of-a-kind archival materials as well as a research facility. Breckenridge History has undertaken a variety of one-time capital preservation and interpretive projects, both within town limits as well as at outlying sites on Town of Breckenridge and Summit County Government open space, and in partnership with the US Forest Service. Our scope, or “area of concentration,” includes the greater Breckenridge area, defined as Hoosier Pass (southern boundary) to Tiger Road/the Swan River (northern boundary), and from the Ten Mile Range (western boundary) to the Continental Divide (eastern boundary).

You have a great mission – inspiring! History is such a gift; thank you for opening it to us.

Leigh did an amazing job. She was so knowledgeable, interesting and kind. Plus, we loved snowshoeing in such a beautiful location while learning at the history of mining.

Overall the selection, payment, and the hike were flawless. Mariana is an outstanding guide and was so informative. We really enjoyed our morning snowshoe hike. Thank you!
