Behind Swinging Doors, the Saloons of Breckenridge and Summit County, Colorado 1859-1900
Whiskey arrived in what would become Summit County, Colorado, during the reign of the mountain men (1820-1850). When prospectors arrived to search for gold in 1859, saloons and saloon keepers were not far behind. This book contains historic photographs and descriptions of these early commercial ventures.
