Lyons Railroad Depot (Lyons Public Library)

Boulder County

Longmont contractor Mark Boyd built the depot in 1885 utilizing native Lyons sandstone.  Used first by the narrow gauge Denver, Utah and Pacific Railroad, the depot served passengers and freight until declining traffic brought its closure in the 1940s.
