During the height of Aspen's silver boom in 1888, Jerome Wheeler built this stunning Queen Anne home for his wife. But after his wife refused to live in it, Wheeler was stuck with an empty mansion until 1905, when Edgar and Mary Stallard moved in and occupied the place for 40 years.The Aspen Historical Society bought the estate in 1969 and it has been a house museum every since. Displays include an 1892 Knabe piano, which Albert Schweitzer played at the 1949 Goethe convocation, Renaissance Revival furniture, 10th Mountain Division uniforms and ski equipment, and dolls dating back to the 1880s.
