Steamboat Springs Depot

Routt County

David Moffat’s Denver, Northwestern and Pacific Railway reached Steamboat Springs in 1909, thus opening up an important rail link between the community and Colorado’s Eastern Slope markets.

Denver architect Frank Edbrooke designed the two story building which included a passenger section, with waiting rooms and station office below upper level living quarters, and a long freight and baggage extension to the west.  The depot closed when passenger service ended in 1968.  Listed under Railroads in Colorado, 1858-1948 Multiple Property Submission.
