Breckenridge Historic Tours Colorado

Breckenridge HISTORICAL TOURSTransport yourself back to the 1880s at the Lomax Mine, with its authentic carriage house, assay office and miner’s cabin. Original artifacts fill the assay office, where miners brought in samples to determine the value of their gold. After learning about mining, visitors can try their luck at panning for gold.

The Washington Gold Mine consists of a hard-hat tour of a simulated underground mine with the original shaft house. You’ll get an idea of what Breckenridge mining was like in the 1800s, from storing animals to blasting and drilling.

The Country Boy gives underground tours, gold panning lessons and burro rides. You can even take home the gold you find in a vial. In 1887, the mine acted as a silver, lead, zinc and gold mine and was important in producing zinc for the United States during World War II.

Breckenridge history holds plenty of stories in its various museums. The town has restored an 1882 Victorian home in honor of Barney Ford, a prominent Breckenridge businessman who escaped slavery through the Underground Railroad. The Edwin Carter Museum, named after the naturalist, is Colorado’s second oldest museum. The Breckenridge Walking Tour features the oldest homes in town, from log cabins to mail-order houses and Victorian charmers, such as the 1880 Alice G. Milne House. Breckenridge also houses an early 1900s rotary slow plow — a huge machine with giant cutting fans, which cleared narrow-gauge railroad tracks by throwing snow 30 feet. It’s near the Stephen C. Ice Arena.
