In the 2000s the Town of Breckenridge and Summit County Open Space and Trails Department contracted with Eric Twitty, Mountain States Historical, to complete a large scale, multi-phase inventory of the Upper Blue River drainage’s important historic prospect, mine, logging and settlement sites. Funded by a Colorado State Historical Fund grant and the Town of Breckenridge, the project focuses on sites within a U-shaped concentration of hard rock and placer mines commonly referred to as the “Golden Horseshoe”. The project area also includes sites located throughout Bald Mountain or dispersed around the North, Middle, and South Forks of the Swan River.
Mine Sites Inventories identify sites for historic preservation, recommend management actions, and gather data for academic studies of the mining industry and associated settlement. Inventories include: modern topo maps of the area, general site history, historic photographs (if available), artifact/site mapping of what remains, and site significance.
