Red brick American Foursquare style house constructed in 1909 as the residence for Robert W. and Margaret C. Foote. Located on South Main Street, Breckenridge. Behind the house are huge piles of rock tailings left behind by gold dredging operations.
Elmer C. Peabody dedicated this typed manuscript to his granddaughters in 1952. In it, he shares his memories of the "Big Snow" of 1898-1899 as a fourteen year old boy living in Breckenridge. Of particular interest is Elmer's description of "snow bikes". Also, he tells about mail delivery and transportation by skis, low food supplies and Mrs. Kaiser's cow, and dances held at G.A.R. Hall and Fireman's Hall.
