Association of Bridal Consultants Aspen Fact Caravan: Wheeler/Stallard Museum

After the gondola ride back down the mountain, we boarded a shuttle bus and were taken on a tour of three other venues in and around Aspen. The first stop: Aspen Historical Society’s Wheeler/Stallard Museum.

“MISSION STATEMENT: The Aspen Historical Society enriches the community through preserving and communicating of our remarkable history.

“Jerome B. Wheeler built this Queen Anne style home in 1888. Despite his plans, his wife Harriet Macy Valentine Wheeler refused to leave their mansion in Manitou Springs, Colorado and the family never lived here. Edgar and Mary Ella Stallard moved into the house in 1905, eventually purchasing it in 1917. The family lived here for forty years. The house last served as the residence of the Aspen Institute’s president before the Aspen Historical Society purchased it in 1969.”
