Barlow and Sanderson Stage Depot
1874. In Centennial Park, southeast corner of Spruce and 2nd sts. at the D&RG tracks

Barlow and Sanderson, the last major Colorado stagecoach company, used this one-story, hand-hewn cabin of Douglas fir logs with notched corners and overlapping exterior boards. It was moved to this cottonwood-shaded park across from the Town Hall in 1973, placed on a stone foundation, and converted to a transportation museum.
