The Breckenridge Heritage Alliance has several lovely and unique properties that are available to rent for wedding ceremonies, receptions, family reunions, and other special events. We rent the outdoor lawn/spaces from June through mid-October (weather dependent). At this time, we do not rent the interior of any of our sites. Please read on for more information about our sites! If you'd like more information or to request a site please complete the Site Rental Inquiry Form.

NOTE: We understand many couples are facing difficult choices this wedding season. For summer 2021 we will offer our sites for ceremony-only events for the reduced rate of $150 (with the exception of the Washington Mine site, which will remain at $100) for a maximum of 50 people. All site rentals must abide by current state and local guidelines for health and safety measures.
