In 2007, Ridgway (pop. 713) dedicated a 60-acre park to the late actor Dennis Weaver, best known for his roles on the TV shows Gunsmoke and McCloud. The park’s centerpiece is a bronze eagle with a 21-foot wingspan. Weaver moved to Ridgway in the 1980s and built Earthship, his home made of car tires and other recycled materials.
