Move of Historic Newman Mine Building on Campus, October 9 and 12, 2015
Over the course of nearly two weeks, the former Newman Mine foreman home (circa 1880s, also used as the AMFS "Business Building" offices) was moved 150 feet, making room for a teaching studio/practice room building (middle school for Aspen Country Day School) and grassy playing field. First the house was "rolled" sideways (October 9), then hooked up to a truck and driven the short bit over to the new foundation (October 12). Work stopped and started over hours, and days, in order to make frequent adjustments and ensure the safety and integrity of the structure. Finally, on October 20th, the building settled in to its new "forever home."
