*This home has much history. Yes, it was built in 1896 by Milton Moore. Your family could be the sixth owner of the home since Moore built it.
*Judge William Rathmell was good friends to Chief Ouray and his wife Chipeta. Who knows both may have visited the house.
*Now this lovely, historic home was built in 1896, but a 1,064 square feet addition was added to the large older house after the older house was insulated and additional features added around 1994.
*Since 2015, the current owners have replaced windows in the old house with insulated windows, added all new carpet, flooring, and new appliances (2021), all walls given a fresh coat of pleasing paint. And in 2022 a new metal roof was in place. The kitchen was completely remodeled in 2019.
*The house has been restored to a magnificent look back in time but modernized. The original house is now used as it was in the 1800s. The office-library are the same room as the Judge's. I will note that he wrote the book that became the movie “The Sons of Katy Elder” (starring John Wayne). The parlor, dining, kitchen, and bath is the same location. Privacy, fruit trees, and stunning Amphitheater alpenglow views complete this Ouray treasure. Schedule a tour of this Ouray gem today.
