Abram Cutler

Mt. Abrams
Picture by Ryan Kolowich

Abram Cutler was the first judge in Ouray County. There were probably other children who came first, but his child was the first one whose birth was officially recorded in county records. His house was located at the northeast corner of 5th Avenue and 5th St., the site of the McCullough house today. He left his name on two important landmarks in Ouray: Mt. Abram and Cutler Creek. Not much is known of this first judge, but he left his mark here in Ouray.
