Home Life in Crested Butte

Home Is Where the Heart Is...

Imagine running a household in this small isolated mining town in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, working to feed your family and stay warm in this taxing climate. Our Home Life Exhibit features a variety of items that were used by hearty Crested Butte residents, including a beautiful cook stove, gramophone, furniture, a hutch used specifically for cooling pies and other baked goods, dinnerware and more.

We also have two locally-made mannequin cases displaying vintage clothing that are updated on a seasonal basis. Come see our newest item, a 1898 buffalo coat donated by Zeno Wall III!
