Breckenridge’s old YMCA building is the star of the show in a recent episode of “Expedition Texas,” and the 20-minute documentary is now available for viewing online.

This morning, Bob Mauldin, the host and director of “Expedition Texas,” posted the episode on the show’s YouTube channel. In the video, Breckenridge Mayor Bob Sims takes Mauldin on a tour of the building, from the top floor to the basement.

The show originally aired on The CW and Heartland TV networks on Nov. 14.

While in Breckenridge, the show’s crew interviewed McKenly Roberts and Axel Puebla, who, along with Liberty Blades, worked on a project in 2019 to beautify and improve the security of the old building. Their work included repairing and/or replacing windows, doors and light fixtures, and cleaning up the rooms on the first floor.

“Expedition Texas” also interviewed several local citizens who remember attending various events at the YMCA through its various stages of use over the years.
