In addition to being a rough and tumble mining camp, Breckenridge was also a Victorian town where gentlemen and ladies socialized at each other’s homes. One of the largest and best-appointed houses of the time was owned by socialites William and Kathleen Briggle. William served as the town mayor in the early 1900s and Katie, an accomplished musician, taught piano and held concerts in her parlor. Today, the Briggle House has been restored to its original Victorian style, giving visitors a glimpse into the life of one of Breckenridge’s more affluent historical families.
The Briggle house is included as a stop on the Historic Walking Tour and Breckenridge Haunted Tour. It is also where we host our Historic Tour and Victorian Tea. Private tours of the home are available by calling 970-453-9767 x102.
