Have any photos from the Montrose County Fair? Comment them below for a chance at a $25 Montrose Bucks gift card!

It's another photo contest! 

Just like for 4th of July, the newsroom wants to give away a gift card for the best photo from the Montrose County Fair. Starting today, we'll be hosting the contest for the next week, so if you haven't taken many photos, get out there this weekend and set up the perfect shot!

You can submit as many photos as you'd like (without spamming) and we'll vote on our favorite at the end of next week. Here's some photos of the fair from Joseph Harold to inspire you.

Fall Migration Starts Soon

It feels like summer, but the fall migrations start in a couple of weeks.  Many threatened and endangered bird species will be heading south on journeys of many thousands of miles, and they do it at night.  Please help them by turning off as many lights as possible  for the next two months.  For more info: https://rockies.audubon.org/naturalist/lights-out/fall-migrations-begins?ms=rockies-eng-email-ea-newsletter-engagement_20210803_%28rockies%29_newsletter-202108_-_cloned&emci=bc71c5c0-6af1-eb11-b563-501ac57b8fa7&emdi=087336c9-9df4-eb11-b563-501ac57b8fa7&ceid=4638472&utm_source=ea&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=engagement_20210803_(rockies)_newsletter-202108_-_cloned

What Montrose buildings should be on the historic register?

The Denver and Rio Grande Railroad Depot was recently ‚Äč‚Äčadded to the City of Montrose‚Äôs register of historic places.

In order to join the city’s historic register, the structure had to meet the following criteria: the structure must be more than 50 years old; the building must be significantly associated with Montrose’s history, and the design must reflect historic architectural standards.

The Montrose Historic Preservation code was established in 2018 and is meant to help maintain ‚Äúthe community‚Äôs unique character.‚Ä̬†

Thus far, the other buildings on the list include City Hall, Montrose Potato Growers Association, the building with restaurant Main and Vine, the building with Double Barrel Taco, the old Fire Department no. 1, the old County Jail building and Montrose Visitor Center. The city processes applications for new historic places through an online form. 

Are there any other buildings in Montrose you think should be a historic place?
