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.


The Wheeler / Stallard Museum

Bests, Firsts & Worsts: Aspen in Objects is on exhibit on the second floor of the Wheeler/Stallard Museum until April 28, 2018. The exhibit showcases more than 90 artifacts that tell the story of the Aspen area’s quirky history in superlatives – both good and bad. Pieces like Walter Paepcke’s top hat and Jerome B. Wheeler’s Civil War sword help to tell our story. Tour the exhibit and then vote on your favorite object!

Due to the popularity of the exhibit, AHS recently updated and reprinted the exhibit catalog as a complete literary exhibition. The evergreen piece is included in museum admission until the exhibition comes down, after which the catalog will be available for purchase at the Wheeler/Stallard Museum store as well as at Explore Booksellers in Aspen.

Made possible by the Louis and Harold Price Foundation.
