The City of Gunnison is home to about 5300 people as well as Western State College. With a strong ranching and agricultural background, Gunnison has been the County Seat since 1874. The wide open vistas offer a feeling of freedom in this place of unequaled beauty.
1/2 hour south of the Ski Resort and Historic Town of Crested Butte, Gunnison is where locals go to do their grocery shopping, and enjoy the conveniences of larger shops and the Gunnison/Crested Butte Regional Airport.
Real Estate in Gunnison is more affordable than the "up valley" communities of Mt. Crested Butte and Crested Butte. Historic Homes are mixed in with newer construction, condominiums, and townhomes.
