"Marble--The beauty of the area can't be stressed enough."

The location of Marble is amazing! Tucked away on a county road and far away from any major highway, Marble is a remote little town of 100+ souls at 8,000 feet in Colorado's southcentral high peaks. Marble is on the back side of the mountains where the ski resorts around Aspen are.

I learned about Marble after employing the area after going to Penny Hot Springs around mile marker 55 on HW 131. The natural hot springs flow out of the Crystal riverbank and people have dammed up the hot water before it moves into the freezing river. This area is magical and Mount Sopris dominates the area with her beautiful symmetric peak.

The town of Marble is named for the Yule quarry that started in the 1880s and is still mined for marble today. The stone is of such great quality that it was used on the Lincoln Memorial in D.C. and used to build in San Francisco and New York. In 2004, Polycor a Canadian company purchased the mine and the stone continues to be shipped throughout the US and now into Europe and Asia.There is the annual summer Marble sculpting symposium held in town and the stone quarry draws a lot of tourism.

The homes in Marble are unique and charming and if you are interested in a truly remote mountain town with serious character it may be worth your time to invest in property here. Being at such a high elevation the winters are tough and the way into any major town is far, Glenwood Springs to the north is probably almost an hour drive depending on the weather. The town of Aspen is also about an hour away up north and around the peaks. The beauty of the area can't be stressed enough.
