Edwin Carter Museum

Edwin Carter Museum

Edwin Carter was a Breckenridge pioneer and famous "log cabin naturalist." Concerned about the impact of mining on the local wildlife in the late 1800's, Carter devoted his life to collecting and documenting Rocky Mountain wildlife. Tours of the museum, which contains artifacts from his collection, are available through the Summit Historical Society.
