Denver General: 132 reviews and 154 photos
Favorite thing: Denver's Union Station was constrcuted to consolidate rail acitivy in the City and to replace the 4 separate stations. This 1880 Italianate style is built of Colorado Rhyolite and sandstone.
Length: 504 feet
Height: 128 feet (tower)
Designer: William E. Taylor of Kansas City.
Expanded in 1892 to 880 feet.
A fire burned down the central section on March 18, 1894. It was replaced by a Van Brunt & Howe (Kansas City). IN 1914, this section was replaced with the existing Neoclassical section.
