Depot Building History: 

Constructed by Colorado & Southern Railway (C&S) bridge and building crews in 1909, the Broomfield Depot jointly served the C&S and one of its subsidiaries, the Denver & Interurban Railroad. Its hard to imagine Broomfield as a small town but in 1909 only 160 people resided in the hamlet. Concerned about the lack of housing for a station agent and hoping to attract a married man because they were considered steady and reliable, the railroad built the living-in depot with a family in mind. Guided tours explain the risks and benefits for the railroad employees and their families who lived onsite.
