Ouray's Architectural Heritage

This study characterizes the architectural mix of the buildings within the Ouray Historic District and determines the conformity with existing and proposed national and local historic preservation guidelines. ​The study expands upon the survey conducted by Cathleen Norman.

This project was conceived by the Ouray Chamber Resort Association and its Board of Directors. The Ouray County Historical Society and the City of Ouray soon gave their enthusiastic support to the idea. Thus, the project was launched. 

Beginning in 1998 as a regional effort to protect 10,500 acres of scenic and historic landscapes, preserve numerous historic mining and railroad sites, and provide enhanced recreation and interpretive opportunities along the San Juan Skyway.
