Breckenridge, Colorado's oldest town west of the Continental Divide, was founded by a group of hardy miners during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush. For nearly 100 years, the town lived and died by mining. This virtual tour transports you to 1880s Breckenridge, the height of the mining era. Check out a mining camp turned ghost town, see the longest operating mine in Breckenridge and hear how the railroad traversed high mountain passes year-round. This augmented reality experience is highlighted by a 360 re-creation of downtown. Your guide Edwin Carter, local museum founder and prospector, shares stories of life in early-day Breckenridge. Hear how fires threatened town, learn about Breckenridge's first civil rights leader and understand the harsh reality of living high in the Rocky Mountains during the long, cold winters.
