The Barney Ford House Museum honors Barney L. Ford, an escaped slave who became a prominent entrepreneur and civil rights pioneer in Colorado. Ford became the first black businessman in Breckenridge when he opened Ford’s Restaurant and Chop House in 1880.

Edwin Carter was born in Oneida, New York in 1828, and came to Colorado as a prospector in 1860 during the gold rush. Carter came to Breckenridge in 1868 in search of gold and fortune, but soon changed his life's direction as a result of what he saw taking place.   

He was distraught over the environmental devastation and blatant disregard for wildlife that he witnessed, and as a result, devoted his life to conservation.  Carter began to collect specimens of Rocky Mountain mammals and raptors, and kepts them in his museum for the appreciation of future generations.
