Museums are Community Anchors

 

In the fall of 1966, a group of local women discussed the idea with a goal of "a museum to preserve and display early day articles and history of our American heritage especially as related to the area of Montrose County".  The Montrose Woman's Club voted to sponsor the organization of a museum.  On

October 8, 1968, the Montrose County Historical Society was formed.

On October 18, 1973, the Historical 

Denver & Rio Grande Depot was the 

location for the newly form museum.
