In 1868 prospector Edwin Carter built this cabin in Breckenridge, where he made buckskin clothes and tried his luck during the Colorado Gold Rush. Carter soon quit mining and became a naturalist, filling his cabin with thousands of wildlife specimens from the surrounding mountains. Today his cabin is a small museum in Breckenridge.
