Research

If you are researching a specific person, event, business, or other subject related to Breckenridge or Summit County’s history, search the COLLECTIONS online. If you don’t see what you are looking for, please contact the Archives for assistance. Appointments are required to access original material on site.

Are you looking for general information about the history of the town of Breckenridge, the history of Summit County, Colorado, or the ski industry? Search the Summit County Public Library catalog—the South Branch of the library is located in the same building as the Archives.

Searching for local family records like Birth and Death Certificates, Marriage Licenses, or Mining Patents and Land Titles? Contact the Summit County Clerk and Recorder’s Office , located just down the street from the Archives on 208 East Lincoln Avenue in Breckenridge.
