Welcome to Montrose County in beautiful Southwest Colorado! Our thriving community is home to 40,000 neighbors in over 2,200 square miles of the Uncompahgre River and Paradox Valleys.
Montrose is blessed with a mild climate by Colorado standards. Summers are pleasant with warm days and cool nights. Winters are relatively mild with some snow storms but snow rarely lasts on the ground more than a few days. Golf courses are available 10 to 11 months out of the year.
Montrose was incorporated on May 2, 1882 and named after Sir Walter Scott's Legend of Montrose. The Denver & Rio Grande railroad building west toward Grand Junction reached Montrose later in 1882 and Montrose became an important regional shipping center with a branch railroad line serving the mineral rich San Juan Mountains to the south.
In 1909 the Gunnison Tunnel opened providing irrigation water from the Gunnison River in the Black Canyon to Uncompahgre Valley helping turn Montrose into an agricultural hub as well.
Today Montrose serves as the gateway to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park to the east of town, and winter transportation hub to ski areas of the San Juan Mountains to the south. In addition to being the Agricultural hub of the western slope, we are home to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, as well as the Gunnison Gorge National Recreation and Wilderness Areas. The majority of our County is made up of National Forest, Bureau of Land Management or National Park lands.
