Breckenridge City Hall,
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 has been told it has a well kept secret when it comes to tourist attractions and things we have to offer. Why not visit and discover this secret?
