This structure is representative of the broad pattern of Aspen’s mining-era residential structures. In particular, the transition from an early log structure to a larger more refined one. This structure represents the middle class lifestyle of a family or individual
during the mining era. It is particularly indicative of the transition from a mining camp to a complex society. The original log structure was expanded and re-sided, and details in the fashion of the time were added to create a residence which kept with the style and expectations of the surrounding community.
