Outdoor Artifact Displays

The BHA initiated a new program in 2015 to install artifacts in outdoor locations for public enjoyment and appreciation of our local history. The first artifact display, a sheave (pronounced “shiv”), is located at Prospector Park on the 100 block of North Main Street in Breckenridge. A sheave acted like a giant pulley for underground mines, lowering miners and their equipment and hauling out ore from vertical mine shafts. An interpretive sign will accompany the sheave display.
