Dec. 13, 2017: Boulder Depot, Boulder, CO


The Boulder Railroad Depot is now retired, but was originally built in 1890 in downtown Boulder to serve as a depot for the Union Pacific railroad. The depot was built in a modified Richardson Romanesque style from native Boulder County stone. Operating as a train station at its original location until 1957 when a new depot opened and replaced it.

IMG_0190The depot was purchased by a bus company and it functioned as a bus transit terminal until 1973. The Boulder Jaycees purchased the station in 1973 and moved it to a location near the original Boulder County, Colorado Fairgrounds to save it from being demolished.

IMG_0202The depot moved again In October 2008 by the City of Boulder and the Colorado Regional Transportation District.  This time it was moved to the site of a new, transit-oriented development a few city blocks to the east.  It's now located just north of 31st and Pearl Street on Junction Place.
