About The Laramie Railroad Depot
The Laramie Railroad Depot was built in 1924 to replace the town's original Union Pacific Depot/Hotel which was destroyed by fire in 1917. It served as Laramie's Union Pacific passenger depot until 1971 and as an Amtrak depot until 1983. In 1985, the Union Pacific Railroad gave the Depot to the Laramie Plains Museum, which then transferred ownership to the Laramie Railroad Depot Association in 2009.
The Depot is the only remaining building left from the once large Union Pacific presence in Laramie and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. The railroad is the reason for the City’s original existence, and the Depot is an important part of Laramie’s historic legacy.
The building houses a museum of railroad memorabilia and is used for various community functions such as music concerts, art exhibits, and public meetings. The building is also used to raise revenue to maintain itself through rentals for weddings, banquets, and other events.
