Significance: This building appears to have originally been a barn or stable that was part of the Koch Lumber Company complex, which, in turn, was the original stage barn site for the Independence Pass Stage Road. The building was a classical Victorian mining camp (vernacular) structure and was of considerable importance as the site of early Aspen's transportation system. The false front was classically western mining town in nature. This structure may have been one of the oldest wooden buildings of its design in Aspen and probably one of the first buildings in town.
