About the Museum:
The Wheeler/Stallard house is a Queen Anne style Victorian built around 1887/1888. The first floor of the Museum is interpreted as a Victorian Aspen home and the second floor gallery features rotating exhibitions to explore area history.
Jerome B. Wheeler built this Queen Anne style Victorian in 1888 for his family. Situated on an entire city block, the home was one of many stately properties in Aspen’s West End neighborhood. Despite his plans, his wife Harriet Macy Valentine Wheeler refused to leave their mansion in Manitou Springs, Colorado and the family never lived in the house. Edgar and Mary Ella Stallard moved in 1905, eventually purchasing the house 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.
