The mission of the Ouray County Ranch History Museum (OCRHM) Is to preserve Ouray County ranching history and heritage of the late 1800s and 1900s. Ranching still remains a vital part of Ouray County’s economic history, and the Ouray County Ranching History Museum helps to preserve and protect that history.

If Aprons Could Talk


IF APRONS COULD TALK…… come and take part in a delightful 3 hours on Saturday filled with an Apron Tea/Light Lunch (incredible food), beautiful music by harpist Robin Freed,
phenomenal silent auction pieces from Christopher’s Culinaire, Rays Jerky, Russell Stovers, and more!
Door prizes and wearing an apron to the gathering to share its story will be our bonus!

This is a fundraiser for OCRHM, the last one this year, and we sure appreciate your support. The Apron Tea is being held in the Colona Schoolhouse (hurray! 100 years old this year) Sept. 17th (Saturday) and begins at 11am and will finish around 2pm.

This is only a glimpse of the silent auction items that will solve some much-needed upcoming gifts for yourself or someone else. Come with friends and have a delightful time!
Don’t forget to RSVP……….we want to cook enough for everyone!  Cost: $15  RSVP to: (970) 318-1190
You may forward this to your friends. Hope to see you there!
