Main Avenue National Historic District

Main Avenue National Historic District Review

The intersection of 13th Avenue and Main Avenue (locals also refer to it as Main Street) marks the northern edge of Durango's Main Avenue National Historic District. Old-fashioned streetlamps line the streets, casting a warm glow on the elegant Victorians filled with upscale galleries, restaurants, and the occasional factory outlet store. Dating from 1887, the Strater Hotel is a reminder of the time when this town was a stop for many people headed west. The town website provides information for self-guided walking tours.
