On January 10th, 2015 the BHA proudly opened the new Dr. Sandra F. Pritchard Mather Archive Room to the public as part of the grand opening for the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center. The new archive - the first for Breckenridge - is designed to preserve one-of-a-kind historic documents and materials. Newspapers, photographs, maps, records, rare books and other Summit County treasures are housed in the facility.
In addition to serving as a repository, the archive will be a place to conduct research. Students, authors and those looking for family or general Summit County history are encouraged to visit the archive to explore its material. Visitors may also stop by to see the room's rotating exhibits.
The archive facility was made possible by a generous contribution from local author and historian, Dr. Sandra Mather.
The archive is located in the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center at 103 South Harris Street, Breckenridge, CO. There is on-site free parking.
The archive is open to visitors who wish to view the rotating exhibits. Access to archival material is by appointment only.
Monday & Tuesday: Closed
Wednesday - Saturday: 1pm-5pm
The archive is closed on New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The archive room is available for meetings outside of open hours for groups up to 12 people. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this unique space for your next meeting.
The archive is still being stocked and is not yet fully functional for research purposes. Please check back regularly and we will post when the facility is operational.
Guest and researcher access to archival material is by appointment only. Please email or call for more information about research and appointments.
Guests are also welcome to just check out the archive room - there are wonderful exhibits and a fabulously preserved pressed tin ceiling to view!
There are no food or beverage items permitted in the archive room.
If you have any questions or need more information please email the archivist at email@example.com or call at 970-453-9767 x104.
