Aspen Historical Society (AHS) actively preserves and passionately presents local history in an inspired and provocative manner that will continue to anchor the local community and its evolving character. Step back in time at four historical sites: the Wheeler/Stallard Museum, the Holden/Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum, and the ghost towns of Independence and Ashcroft. Locals and visitors of all ages are invited to explore the history of the upper Roaring Fork Valley with guided tours, programs, and community events offered year-round. AHS also maintains one of the largest public archives in the region, with a portion of its collection available online as a free resource, and provides free history education for local schools, including field programs at the historical sites and in-classroom lessons.
