Breckenridge Heritage Alliance: Breckenridge Sawmill Museum @ Breckenridge Sawmill Museum
Sep 28 @ 8:00 am

 

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.

Please visit the BHA website for reopening information and guest expectations.
