Wonder why Breckenridge is referred to as the “Kingdom of Breckenridge”?
A group of women from Breckenridge in the 1930’s came across a map of Colorado from the 1880’s that did not include Breckenridge. It led them to believe that Breckenridge was not officially annexed into the United States. In 1936 Breckenridge was officially annexed into the United States with the Governor of Colorado even attending and raising the flag on the courthouse steps in Breckenridge. From then on Breckenridge has been referred to as “Colorado’s Kingdom”.
