Join us on Saturday, January 10, 2014 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at 103 S. Harris Street in Breckenridge for the Grand Opening Celebration of the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center and Summit County South Branch Library!
The community will gather in the front of the building for a toast and ribbon cutting ceremony after hearing from key members of this historical renovation project. Once inside, there will be various children’s crafts such as personalized library cards and book totes, photobooth, book signing by Sandie Mather, as well as the unveiling of a handcrafted quilt designed and made by the Summit County Quilters. The Speakeasy Movie Theater has also reopened and has installed a new digital projector.
After more than 100 years since its original construction, the schoolhouse on Harris Street will once again have new life. After extensive renovations and restoration, the building will now house the south branch of the Summit County Library, Speakeasy Movie Theatre, several non-profit offices including The Summit Foundation and Breckenridge Festival of Film, an archive room for the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance as well as community rooms available for public use.
The building has housed various tenants over the past century. Starting as a high school, it became Town Hall, housed the fire department, sheriff’s office, dance studios, Colorado Mountain College, and more.
Breckenridge Grand Vacations is proud to have partnered with the Town of Breckenridge and Summit County Government on such a community-centered project.
“We invite our owners and guests to come and enjoy the new state-of-the-art library facility, take their family to view a feature film at the updated Speakeasy Movie Theatre, and even sit back to take in the spectacular views on the new reading deck. We want our owners and guests to feel as they have a stake in Breckenridge, and this is the place for them to feel like a part of the community. “
