History & Culture

Breckenridge was established during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush, in 1859, by General George E. Spencer.  The name Breckenridge was chosen after John C. Breckinridge, Vice President of the United States, in the hopes of flattering government and gaining a post office.  Spencer succeeded, and the first post office between the Continental Divide and Salt Lake City, UT was built.

Today, Breckenridge is home to a world-class ski resort and an adventure-filled summer getaway.  As the most visited ski resort in the country, Breckenridge is alive in winter with skiers, snowboarders and other vacationers looking for an unforgettable mountain snow escape.  Summer in Breckenridge attracts outdoor enthusiasts with its hiking and mountain biking trails, fishing, rafting and shopping on Main Street.  Whether visiting in winter or summer, many Breckenridge guests return year after year.
