ABOUT THE MUSEUM
The Holden/Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum explores the industrial and agricultural history of the Aspen area. From mining to ranching to railways, the area’s past comes alive at this pastoral museum that sits on the site of the largest industrial complex in the history of Pitkin County, The Holden Lixiviation Works. The historic Zupancis cabins were recently moved to the property and are being renovated to provide additional interpretive sites. Visitors will leap back to the late 1800’s when Aspen was the nation’s leading silver producer with equipment and displays of the many facets of the industrial age of mining. Also learn about the agricultural period or “Quiet Years,” in the original “barn” that served both the mining enterprise and the Marolt family ranch.
The Museum will open for the summer season on June 12th with the Holden/Marolt Hoedown, an annual community event!
