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. This structure is significant for its position in the context of Aspen’s mining era.  It provides a window into the nature of the life of an average family or individual during that period, as well as the construction techniques, materials available, and architectural fashions of the time. This structure has been relocated, but in an appropriate context that retains the structure’s relationship to the street.  Alterations have been sensitively done, with scale, details and patterns preserved on the street facade.
