o those walking down Elk Avenue today,
the town of Crested Butte would not look
radically different from how it looked 100
years ago. Obviously, a century ago the road
would have been unpaved, and there would
have been fewer people strolling the sidewalks,
which were then wooden boardwalks. There
would likely be coal dust hanging in the sum-
mer air but the look and feel of the town would
be quite similar.
