Jefferson Denver South Park & Pacific Railroad Depot

The circa 1880 depot, with Stick style architectural detailing, is a small well-preserved example of a wood frame combination depot.  Designed to handle passengers and freight, it remained in active use until 1937.

The depot is one of only a few intact historic resources surviving from the DSP&P Railroad’s narrow gauge rail network that extended from Denver into Colorado’s rich mining regions during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Listed under Railroads in Colorado, 1858-1948 Multiple Property Submission.
