On January 10th, 2015 the BHA proudly opened the new Dr. Sandra F. Pritchard Mather Archives Room to the public as part of the grand opening for the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center. The new archives - 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 archives 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 archives facility was made possible by a generous contribution from local author and historian, Dr. Sandra Mather.



The archives is located in the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center at 103 South Harris Street, Breckenridge, CO. There is on-site free parking.
