Thursday, September 16th | 5:30 – 7 pm | Holden/Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum
$15 (ticket includes one beer, $5 extra beer), advance registration required at aspenhistory.org
Join AHS for a panel discussion about the extensive Zupancis homestead buildings restoration project that is ongoing at the Holden/Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum property. From preserved runs of Victorian wallpaper to asbestos-laden walls, conservation projects are always an adventure! Moderated by AHS Curator Lisa Hancock, panelists include expert architectural conservator Natalie Feinberg Lopez, former City of Aspen Historic Preservation Officer Amy Simon, and project architect and AHS trustee Charles Cunniffe. The program will include insight into historical restoration best practices, as well as details about the work accomplished thus far on the miner’s-cabin-turned-Victorian-era-home, shed, and barn.
