Denver & Rio Grande Depot (Denver & Salt Lake Depot)

Denver & Salt Lake Depot
1916, Joseph W. Roeschlaub, builder. 304 Yampa Ave.

This is a twin of the depot in Hayden, a single-story, red pressed brick Prairie Style station. In crowing about the new depot, The Craig Empire, October 11, 1916, concluded that “the work of removing the present ‘depot’ will be quite simple as all that will be necessary is for an engine to hook up to the two cars and move them down the track.” Stripped of its red tile roof, the “new” depot is now abandoned and deteriorating.
