Deep in the heart of the Rocky Mountains lies a small town, and at the heart of the town atop a large hill lies a century old log church. In the late 1800s ranchers and loggers flooded into the valley and the town of Ovando was born. Fueled by the fertile soils to farm and great abundance of timber in the surrounding rocky mountains, men moved here with their families. The rapidly rising population drew up a little town and called it Ovando. Currently there are two of the original buildings left from the initial boom. The small two-cell jail house and our little log church.
