Scope and content

The cornerstone for the Summit County Courthouse in Breckenridge, Colorado was placed in full Masonic ceremony on July 31, 1909. Freemasons from Denver's Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. came by train to join members of Breckenridge Lodge No. 47 for the dedication. A crowd of well-dressed men, women and children gather around the wood platform to watch the cornerstone, or first stone, be placed in the northeast corner of the foundation (still under construction). In the foreground is an automobile filled with more spectators. In the background is Father Dyer Methodist Church, built in 1880, on its original site on North French Street; the church was moved to its present site on Wellington Avenue in 1977.
