Breckenridge, Minnesota on the beautiful prairie of the Red River Valley of the North, is a unique small city of 3,559 people. It's located on the Headwaters of the Red River of the North, the longest North-flowing river in the United States, flowing 549 miles to Lake Winnipeg, Canada, and from there to Hudson Bay.
No novel or TV series could be as interesting as the history and development of Breckenridge and the adventurous people who risked their lives to settle this land. The land now occupied as Breckenridge was originally inhabited by the Dakota (Sioux) and Ojibwa (Chippewa) Indian nations. Countless herds of buffalo roamed the area. In 1851, Indian treaties opened up this land for settlement.
Breckenridge is a "Historic Riverboat & Railroad Town".
Breckenridge is located on the famed Red River of the North. The Bois de Sioux and Otter Tail rivers merge here and offer the opportunity for fishing and canoeing. A unique feature of the area is the country club which has nine holes situated in each state of Minnesota and North Dakota. It is 50 miles to the Fargo Airport.
