Ridgway Volunteer Fire Department

Ridgway Volunteer Fire Department, 421 North Railroad Street, Ridgway, Colorado. Ouray County. This station was built around 1986. A second active station housing one piece of apparatus is located at Elk Meadows.
Old station, 185 North Lena Street, Ridgway, Colorado. Ouray County. The old station was built in 1890 for the Rio Grande Southern Railroad. I believe that the fire department occupied this building from 1957 until 1986. This building can be seen in John Wayne's 1969 movie True Grit.
