Breck150 Continues with Mining & Railroad Weekend

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Wednesday, August 12th, 2009 at 12:21pm.

The celebration of 150 years of Breckenridge continues this weekend. Following last week's Grand Celebration of the birthday of our beautiful mountain town, this weekends events are a tribute to mining and railroad. Railroads played a critical role in helping Breckenridge come to life during the mining era and to develop into the town it is today. This weekend will highlight the railroad relics of Breckenridge's past and showcase the historic railroad route from Breckenridge over Boreas Pass.
