Historic Walking Tour

Take a tour though Breckenridge's nationally recognized Historic District with a local expert! Learn about historic businesses and families and view several of the earliest buildings in town, from log cabins to stately residences. Along the way, hear stories about the gold seekers, hardy souls, and socialites who lived in Breckenridge more than 100 years ago.

The BHA has traditionally highlighted the history on the north end of Main Street but has recently developed a tour focusing on the fascinating buildings and stories from the south end. Even if you've joined us before, this is a great opportunity to explore more of town's rich heritage!
