Red Lady’s View from Elk Avenue
The Off-Season “Mobile” Home

When looking into the history of Crested Butte, you will find that some of the smaller homes around town used to be up in Irwin. Throughout the years they were moved from Irwin to town where they have stayed. Well, we relived that part of our history last week when a home that was built 30 years ago was moved from Crested Butte to Crested Butte South. Instead of a perfectly good single-story house being torn down to make space for a new home, it was picked up and moved 9 miles and will be repurposed into the top floor of a multi-level home for a local family. Seeing all the work that had to go into moving the house from Town to CB South with today’s technology, it really makes you wonder how they went about moving the cabins from Irwin so many years ago.
