What locals are saying

"It is a peaceful proposal," said Montrose, smiling, "such as it should be, coming from one whose actions have always been more peaceful than his measures." - Page 65, A Legend of Montrose, Sir Walter Scott

By its sound, Montrose (elevation 5,806) would seem like a descriptive name for Western Colorado's second largest city, where there are mountains and wild roses. With the town comfortably nestled between the Uncompahgre Mountains on the west, the San Juan Mountains on the south and the smaller but equally impressive Grand Mesa on the north, it would be easy to assume that Montrose's name was due to its surrounding scenic beauty. In fact, present-day residents have the novelist Sir Walter Scott to thank for their city's name. According to city records, it was the gallant escapades of his protagonist in "Legends of Montrose" that inspired the moniker. Had the Earl of Montrose not swashbuckled his way into the hearts of the Uncompahgre pioneers, their little town might have ended up with a much less creative name, like "Dad's Town" or "Uncompahgre City." Today, Montrose, a teeming city of almost 20,000, is a magnate for recreation enthusiasts. That includes those who want convenient access to Colorado's "fourteeners," those mountains that have an elevation of greater than 12,000 feet and offer the benefits of year-round activity on some of the sunniest playgrounds the West has to offer.
