The new Breckenridge Welcome Center is is being build on Main Street right next to the Blue River Plaza. And it's being build inside a historic log cabin.
The log cabin was discovered when the town started tearing down the existing structure on the site and found the log cabin - surrounded and hidden by the existing structure. The renovated and restored building will replace the existing, smaller downtown information and activities center presently located in the Rounds building.
In addition to becoming the new information area, the Welcome Center will eventually offer centralized ticketing for a variety of performances year-round. It will also contain an interpretive center for Breckenridge's history. Exhibits will tell the story of Breckenridge's rich mining history and describe the lives of some of the colorful characters from the past. The cabin will be fully restored and will help describe the historic setting that makes Breckenridge unique.
The new center's anticipated opening is the end of 2005.
