Old Firehouse is the epitome of adaptive re-use, incorporating an historic stone masonry building, renowned for its feature saloon scene in John Wayne's classic western True Grit.  The owner/developer reimagined the building and surrounding site into a highly utilized mixed-use building that embodies historic charm, modern amenities in the new 3rd floor condominiums, 2nd level offices and rooftop greenhouse, and main level commercial kitchen, restaurant & bar, patio and garden space. 

Succcess of the OFH project required extensive structural stabilization, strengthening, and integration of new structural elements with historic elements.  It is highly regarded in the small town of Ridgway as a successful redevelopment project that maximizes the property's potential while honoring the historic value of the Old Firehouse building.
