Ouray: Ourayle and Maggie's find a good fit

by Beecher Threatt

Ourayle House patrons will no longer have to bring their own burgers to grill: Hutch is moving in with Maggie's Kitchen. Jim Hutchinson, owner of Mr. Grumpy Pants Brewing Co., is relocating his brewing and retail operation to a space in the same building as the popular burger restaurant on Main Street. He currently operates at 215 7th Ave.
On Monday the Ouray Planning Commission found that city code criteria were met and granted a conditional use permit that will allow Hutchinson to operate the brewery at 703 Main St.
An interior door will allow customer access between the businesses. While Maggie's Kitchen customers will be allowed to bring their food into the brewery, Hutchinson is still working with state liquor licensing authorities to get permission for brewery customers to take beverages into the restaurant.

History of the Revenue Mine

by Don Paulson, Curator
Ouray County Historical Society

The Star Mining Company has recently reopened the Revenue Mine, one of the largest and most historic mines in Ouray County.  The history of this mine begins with the 1876 platting of the Virginius Lode by William Feland. The Virginius is located about eight miles west of Ouray at over 12,000 feet in Governor Basin. The Virginius changed hands several times over the next few years until it was sold in 1880 to Albert E. Reynolds and John H. Maugham for $100,000, quite a princely sum for the time. Reynolds had been a sutler (a civilian seller of goods to military forces in the field) in Indian Territory, an operator of Indian trading posts and the owner of a large cattle ranch in Texas.
