Condominiums (Mule Barns)

-A A +A
Mule Barns
1890s; 1980, Bruce Robertson. 709 Maroon Ave.

The central portion of this former home for 100 working mine mules was moved into town and expanded into condominiums. The barn's tall, narrow profile is almost a caricature of its former self. Two doors east and far less altered is the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company mine superintendent's two-story frame Queen Anne dwelling (c. 1888).
