SERVPRO Provides Water Damage Remediation in Montrose when Floods come Surging Through

Montrose is a fascinating city with a colorful past. Once home to prehistoric people that left rock art panels in the Shavano Valley Rock Art Site, it later became a vital regional shipping center. This came about thanks to the Denver & Rio Grande railroad. It would go on to become an agricultural center with the advent of the Gunnison Tunnel, which provided water to the area. Today, visitors can enjoy the historic site as well as more modern activities.

Montrose Botanical Gardens 

The Montrose Botanical Gardens were once nothing but sage, cactus, and tumbleweed, but it is now a beautiful garden.  Visitors can tour the garden and participate in educational workshops throughout the year.  Two major events are held throughout the year.  In August, an annual picnic takes place and a Christmas party in December.

Old Spanish Trail

This trail was once a trade route connecting settlements in the northern part of New Mexico to those in Southern California.  Spanish explorers traveled the route in the 16th century and mule pack trains in the 1800s.  It is a very arduous trail, going over arid deserts, high mountains, and deep canyons.  It is rich in history and was used for illicit activities such as stealing horses from area ranches.

Ute Indian Museum

Built in 1956, the Utes Indian Museum shares the history of the Ute tribe.  It was once the home set of Chief Ouray, And Chipeta, his wife.  Visitors can enjoy fascinating exhibitions and explore the Ute culture and how it evolved over the years.  One of the highlights is a celebration of the Bear Dance. Chipeta’s Crypt can be seen, and there’s a beautiful garden full of native plants.
