“The small town with the big heart” truly characterizes Aspen. This community surely has the most non-profit organizations per capita. From the children to the environment the local people always come together to support many worthwhile causes. That is part of what makes this town a community.

Aspen is unparalleled in opportunities from its scenic beauty, to its endless activities and events. No matter what time of the year you find yourself in Aspen you will find world class sophistication and laid back fun. Aspen is dynamic and has found ways to reinvent itself in down times. Her rich history began with the settlement of the Ute Indians. Next she became a Wild West, Silver Mining Town and now has matured into a World Class Ski Resort with World Class Shopping and an international brain trust.

Aspen began attracting great entrepreneurs as far back as the 1880’s when The Wheeler Opera House, a hydroelectric plant, a stock market and telephone system were in place and active. Those were quite impressive innovations for the times. Take a trip through the Wheeler Stallard House on Bleeker Street to fulfill your thirst for Aspen history.
