Bloody revenge one shave at a time.
In this infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, the resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barbershop . Mrs. Lovett’s luck shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up, and the carnage has only just begun!

Ancient Roots and Modern Altars is a visual journey from the sacred ancient images of the Aztec to modern Mexican/Mexican-American celebrations of Día de los Muertos. Santiago Jaramillo’s paintings and murals are filled with images from the ancient Aztec/Mixtec codices mixed with the artists’ inspiration from over 20 years of experience in Aztec dance and research of Pre-Columbian symbols. Along with Jaramillos’s remix of past and present imagery, this exhibition holds Summit County community altars to honor love ones that have passed on, and to honor ancestors and past Aztec dance leaders.
Gallery Hours are: Tues-Wed: 3pm-8pm and Thur-Sun: 9am-8pm

The historic homes, stores, and mines still standing in Breckenridge today could not have existed without the sawmills that processed trees cleared from local hillsides. One of our newest attractions, the sawmill museum offers a self-guided tour of the equipment used by early frontiersmen to cut and prepare timbers for construction.
The Breckenridge Fire Department dates back to 1880, when volunteer firefighters used hand-powered equipment to fight the catastrophic fires that swept through town. Find an original ladder cart, restored hose cart, uniforms and more at the Red, White & Blue Fire Museum, available for tours with a modern firefighter and as a rental for kids’ parties and events.
The museum is open year-round with tours lead by modern firefighters; please visit the Red, White & Blue Fire Station (next to the museum) or call 970-453-2474 to arrange a tour.
