Setting the record straight on Emma store

Dear Editor:

Perhaps Chris Tessem is using “the Historical Society” as a generic term but he carried his generalization too far if that is the case. The Aspen Historical Society did not participate in the restoration of the Emma store, which lies outside our boundaries. To my knowledge, neither did the Basalt Regional Heritage Society.

The Emma store project is under the umbrella of Pitkin County Open Space and Trails with support from the State Historic Fund. A tiny bit of online research would have produced an accurate account.
