e’ve been reading a lot of Laura IngallsWilder at our house

lately. My daughter, who is in kindergarten, is completely

enamored with the stories of the classic

Little House on the


series. While reading aloud the tales of Laura and

her family I have to admit I daydream about what Crested

Butte must have been like when the first settlers came to

mine the area in the late 1800’s.

I’m honored that inside this issue of the Peak, local

historian Dr. Duane Vandenbusche tells the story of the

early days of this mountain town.

This place has certainly grown, but one thing has

persevered, and it’s that those who get to call this place home are the lucky ones.

On these pages, writer Seth Mensing will introduce you to the Davis family, who took a leap of faith

to create their perfect home away from home after falling in love with Crested Butte.

Also inside this issue you’ll get to see inside an amazing remodel in town. Writer Olivia Lueckemeyer

takes you through One Teo, through the eyes of the builder, designer and homeowner.

Writer Alissa Johnson learned a thing or two about today’s green building techniques and philosophies

from two long-time local builders, Robb Fessenden and Don Smith.

In this issue of the Peak, we’re pleased to introduce you to local artists, chefs, designers, event planners

and volunteers – each one honored to call this place home.

There’s no place in the world like Crested Butte. And there’s no place like
