In 1891, the Holden Lixiviation Mill sprawled over 22 acres at the edge of Aspen, boasting state-of-the-art technology and industrial design. Just 14 months after the new plant opened, Congress demonetized silver and the mill went bankrupt. Mike Marolt purchased the property for a dollar in 1940 as a family ranch. This site is unique. It tells the stories of both Aspen’s mining and ranching heritage.

A nice museum, although a bit small. Guide was very informative and it was interesting to learn about Aspen history. A good value at $6. Note, the place is difficult to find.

We live in Aspen and had often been told how great the Holden Marolt was , so my 6 yo son and I spent a couple hours exploring this little museum and grounds on a summer afternoon. It's tucked away and you may miss the...More
