Historical Use:


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, though this example is unique in that it is constructed of brick. 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.
