A Piece of History
From the early 1900`s up to 1942, there were a total of nine dredges operating in Summit County. Upon completion of the railroad, there was capability to build these huge dredges. The boilers alone weighed over eleven tons and were shipped from the east coast, while the timber came from Oregon. This two million pound floating restaurant is a replica of one of the largest and longest operating dredges in Breckenridge. It was the last dredge operating, and shut down in this pond in 1942. Its remains are currently entombed in the silt below. In 1933, starting near Watson Avenue, The Dredge slowly moved through Breckenridge, operating continuously night and day until the end of 1935. Without profits to keep it alive, The Dredge lay idle. With no maintenance and care, it sank in November of 1937. In 1939 The Dredge was again resurrected by the lure of gold and eastern financiers and was renamed Blue River No.1. It began churning from its sunken location near Washington Avenue and it landed in its final location-here, on a pond behind Main Street Breckenridge! Later, it was partially dismantled with the last of its remains sinking in 1966.
