Ouray City Hall: 1974

City Hall was rebuilt after it burned down in January 1950, and looked quite different in 1974! According to Wikipedia a restoration effort in 1976 as part of the city of Ouray Centennial failed, but another restoration effort succeeded in 1988. So the 1988 building is still there, but not the 1900 building.

[The frame and foundation of the 1900 building are the basis of the current structure with its restored facade. - Dave]

Still there

but the fire department has moved.
