Around and About Colorado
South of Montrose about an hour and a half is the small town of Telluride, which has a rich history. The area was used as a summer camp for centuries by the Ute Indians and was named by Spanish explorers in the 1700s. The first mining claim (Sheridan Mine) in the area, lead to the establishment of a tent camp in the valley below. A melting pot of immigrants seeking their fortunes turned Telluride into a thriving community of 5,000. When silver prices crashed in 1893, followed by the First World War, the mining boom collapsed. The town’s population gradually dwindled. In the 1970s the town reinvented itself opening Telluride Ski Resort in 1972. This sparked a resurgence in the community and new possibilities.
Today, Telluride is known for its world-class skiing and stunning ambiance. The town is tucked into a box canyon surrounded by peaks-13,000 and 14,000 foot high. Due to its significant role in the history of the American West, the core area of the town was designated a National Historic Landmark District. This area is eight blocks wide and twelve blocks long. Here you will find colorful Victorian-era homes, and historic buildings which have been turned into boutiques, art galleries, gourmet restaurants and luxury hotels.

Montrose showcases a captivating blend of architectural heritage that reflects its unique history. The city’s historic downtown is a treasure trove of well-preserved buildings, offering a charming glimpse into its past. However, a lesser-known architectural feature lies beneath the surface-a network of tunnels, often hidden from plain view, were constructed during the Prohibition era. They served various purposes, including smuggling of illicit substances and as secret passages for escape. While these subterranean structures remain largely concealed, they add a mysterious layer to Montrose’s architectural narrative, reminding us of a bygone era of secrecy and intrigue beneath the city streets.
