Centennial Depot

 

 
 

Read All About It:

Constructed in 1907, the Centennial Depot is the oldest surviving depot of a unique Rocky Mountain railroad. The Laramie, Hahn’s Peak and Pacific Railway Company, formed in 1901, provided valuable rail service to a remote area of Wyoming, and was integral to the economic life of the Centennial Valley and the Medicine Bow Mountains. Ranching, lumbering, and mining interests all relied heavily on the 111 mile line. Originally planned in anticipation of a gold strike which never materialized, the railroad instead transported the more profitable products of the Centennial area: cattle, lumber, and coal.

The Centennial depot symbolizes the role the railroad has played in the settlement of the region. The building has often served as a center of community activity. At one time, the U.S. Post Office was located in the waiting room and a small grocery store was once operated in a corner of the structure.
