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.
