Ouray, Colorado’s Evalyn Walsh McLean and the Curse of the Hope Diamond

by Julie McDonald

Evalyn Walsh spent the first 10 years of her life moving around Colorado while her father searched for that illusive big strike that would make them rich. In 1895 the Walsh family moved to Ouray, Colorado. Within a year, Tom Walsh had found the mother lode high above Ouray near Imogene Pass. This short eBook, about a 40 minute read, focuses primarily on Evalyn’s fascinating, and funny, early years in Colorado. She would go on to become a well known Washington socialite and purchased the fabulous 44 1/2 carat, Hope Diamond in 1911. The Hope Diamond was said to be cursed. Learn about the curse, and the fascinating, but tragic ending of Evalyn’s life.
