The History of Aspen
Once a silver-mining town during the boom of the 1800s, it was during the cultural renaissance of the 1940s that Aspen began to truly take the form that we know and love today.
Walter and Elizabeth Paepcke arrived in town and with it brought their image for what they believed Aspen could become, known as The Aspen Idea.
The Aspen Idea exudes itself eloquently from peak to valley in the town. Which you will soon understand for yourself should you choose to charter a jet to visit the remarkable destination!
