Through to the 1880s, the number of Breckenridge CO homes continued to grow in the important gold mining and supply location. Breckenridge became even more popular with the discovery of Colorado's largest gold nugget, "Tom's Baby." However, the Great Depression and World War II subsequently took their toll on the Breckenridge community, reducing it to near-ghost-town status. The era of gold mining was gone forever. Nonetheless, a few hardy citizens hung on and continued to maintain the little Town of Breckenridge.
Thus the little mountain town that arose out of the gold rush currently depends on the "white gold" or snow that beckons people from around the world to vacation. A good year of snow means substantially more visitors filling up the lovely mountain chalets and slope-side villas. Set in the Ten Mile Range near the Continental Divide, the resorts welcomes skiers and riders to every type of terrain, terrain parks, developments and skier amenities.
However, stories of the quaint and colorful historical background add a rich heritage that is unique to this area, a wealth of tales hiding behind the rocks and rivers that still waits the newcomer's discovery.
