Opal Marolt House
Year:1920s more 40s
This vernacular farmhouse is located on the historic Marolt parcel among mature cottonwoods near an irrigation ditch. The house has a cross-gable roof with synthetic wood shake shingles and aluminum siding. These non-historic materials were modified at an unknown date. While the exterior materials have been modified the building has received minimal remodels and the original form has not been altered. This farm house, which was associated with a ranching family that continues to live in the Roaring Fork Valley, is representative of Aspen’s transition from mining to ranching at the turn of the century.
