Aspen Historical Society [CO]

The Aspen Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the rich cultural and historical heritage of the Aspen Valley, from its original Indian inhabitants up through its modern-day status as one of the world's premier skiing destinations. The society operates seven historic sites, ranging from mining ghost towns to historic house museums.

The society offers guided tours of its museums and historic sites, research resources, field trip programs, a traveling trunk program, and special events. The website offers visitor information, access to the society's archives, lesson plans for teachers, a calendar of events, and detailed historical information about Aspen.
