Moffat Station, Denver Colorado

Date added: January 26, 2010 Categories: Colorado Train Station Georgian

The Moffat Station was the Denver terminus of the Denver, Northwestern and Pacific Railroad. David Moffat, an early Denver pioneer and businessman, formed the railroad in 1902, vowing to build the first railroad directly west from Denver to Salt Lake City, Utah. Although Moffat never achieved that goal, his railroad did link much of northwestern Colorado to Denver.

Moffat Station is one of only two railroad stations remaining in Denver. It represents the work of Denver architect Edwin Moorman and provides an example of predominantly Georgian Revival architecture, combining other styles popular at the turn of the century.
