History

Breckenridge Museum

Breckenridge is the largest historic district in Colorado with a very rich and colourful history.

It all began in 1859 when gold was discovered by the Blue River, as miners worked to extract the gold a small town began to grow around them. The town was named Breckenridge.

Camps turned into structures and the miners became permanent residents. One of the first businesses to be established in Breckenridge was The Gold Pan Saloon, a drinking and social hang out for all the miners, it is still standing to this day.

By 1860 more than 8,000 miners and their families had moved to Breckenridge and many of the old buildings that were built for the settlers still remain today.
