This structure is representative of Aspen’s mining era character. The building represents a typical style known locally as the “Miner’s Cottage,” characterized by the relatively small size, simple floor plan, and front gable / porch relationship.

It describes the nature of the life of an average family or individual during that period, as well as the construction techniques, materials available and the fashion of the time.
