Historic Preservation

Historic Preservation connects us to our heritage, enabling us to learn from and appreciate the stories and context of our past. Preserving our historic resources differentiates us as a community and contributes to our long-term cultural awareness and sustainability.

The City of Aspen has engaged in preservation since the early 1970s and was one of the first communities in the state to formally address this issue.

Spinning Through Time

A Progressive Bike Tour to Aspen’s Historical Landmarks 
May 31, 2022 | 4 p.m.

Historic Bike Tour is May 31

In celebration of Historic Preservation Month, the City of Aspen is hosting a progressive bike tour through Aspen to visit some of our most treasured landmarks. Bring your bike and learn about Aspen’s architectural history, as well as the work being done to preserve these important structures that tell a story of Aspen through the ages.

We’ll meet as a group at the Wheeler Opera House (320 E. Hyman Avenue, Aspen) and tour through nearby neighborhoods, ending back in Downtown Aspen.

This event is free to attend. Please bring your bike, helmet, water, and a backpack or basket.

We are nearing capacity on the tour. Please RSVP to Sarah Yoon by May 25th, 2022.
