CCA has worked for decades with Ouray County to meticulously, efficiently and respectfully restore the Ouray County Courthouse, built and occupied since 1888. The courtroom where John Wayne once famously held forth as U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn in the 1968 movie classic “True Grit” was in desperate need of repair, expansion and updating to carry forward in the modern age. The goal of the project was to bring back the look and feel of the historic era of both the interior and exterior of the building, enhancing and celebrating the building’s strengths while quietly shoring up its deficits and providing modern, efficient upgrades. Not only did CCA provide all programming, architectural and construction administration duties for this historic restoration and addition, our team also aided the County in securing funding through various grants.
The transformation was incredible! We look forward to sharing more of the story and photos with you. Thank you to our dedicated team and the County of Ouray for entrusting us with this important historic building. It was an honor!
