Breckenridge Heritage Alliance

Today, Breckenridge is a world-class ski town, complete with high-end shopping, vibrant nightlife, and outdoorsy splendor. But in 1859, it was just a shabby mining camp on the cusp of a gold-fueled population boom. Clearly, much has changed over the years. The nonprofit Breckenridge Heritage Alliance helps keep that history alive by preserving the town's historic sites and honoring the prominent people who helped shape the community. Thanks to the work of the alliance, visitors can pay a visit to the Victorian home once belonging to William H. Briggle, an early 20th century mayor, and his wife, the town's first Lady of Refinement. Or they can take a guided tour of the Washington gold and silver mine, one of the area's largest with more than 10,000 feet of underground workings. Similar exhibits explore the history of Summit County skiing, its pioneering railroads, and its haunted historic district, with tours available to suit all ages.

Wear sturdy shoes because you're wandering through the old graveyard. It was very historically informative. We liked it.

Great tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and told some entertaining accounts of the events that took place in and around the saloons.
