Boulder Railroad Depot
The Boulder Railroad Depot is a retired train depot in Boulder, Colorado. It was originally built in 1890 in downtown Boulder to serve as a depot for the Union Pacific railroad. The depot was built in a modified Richardson Romanesque style from native Boulder County stone. The depot operated as a train station at its original location until 1957, when a new depot opened and replaced it.
The depot was purchased by a bus company and it functioned as a bus transit terminal until 1973. In 1973 the Boulder Jaycees purchased the station and moved it to a location near the original Boulder County, Colorado Fairgrounds to save it from being demolished. The efforts of the Boulder Jaycees and Historic Boulder, Inc. were instrumental in preserving the structure.
In October 2008, the City of Boulder and the Colorado Regional Transportation District moved the depot again, this time to the site of a new, transit-oriented development a few city blocks to the east.
In December, 2015, the depot reopened as a restaurant and bar named Roadhouse Boulder Depot in the Boulder Junction development. It's now located just north of 31st and Pearl Street on Junction Place.
