Summit Historical Society gives thanks

Rick Hague, presidentSummit Historical Society board of directors

For nearly three years, Mike and Rob Millisor and Grand Timber Lodge sponsored a significant cultural and historical program for visitors and residents of Breckenridge, namely Summit Historical Society’s Main Street Museum. Roughly 100,000 people passed through the museum to learn about the history of Summit County. These same people, of course, passed by the many Main Street businesses near the museum. The Society built three themed exhibits in that time period: Early Summit Transportation, Booze, Brothels, and Baptism – Life and Leisure at 10,000 Feet and A Child’s World – Turn of the Century.Grand Timber provided the 1,600-square-foot space at 111 Main St. completely free of cost to the society. Not only was this prime retail space donated, but Grand Timber also provided sponsorship funding for some of the exhibit construction costs, as did The Summit Foundation. Recently, the space was leased to another party and was vacated by both the museum and Grand Timber. The museum was closed on Oct. 1 and the society is now seeking another site for the museum.The board of directors of the society wish to express their sincere appreciation and thanks to Mike, Rob, and the entire Grand Timber group for their very generous community service and significant financial contribution to the society and the local community. Not only were they generous but they were great people to work with as well. Thank you.
