This is another stop in Wyoming to see some of the great work horses that helped build this great country. We need more of these awesome work horses restored and taken care of.

This building was build in 1924. The volunteer board has done a great job of maintaining this beautiful building. It is a great option for a rental for a wedding or a party. They have installed a kitchen which is a wonderful addition for renters.

The historic depot is an interesting place for either train or history buffs. The museum is interesting and they do have special events or displays periodically. Trains still run on the tracks in back of the depot.

Depot is a Historic Building next to the several rows of Train Tracks. Many trains go by. Historic old train on site. Walking Bridge nearby that gives you a "Birds Eye View" of the trains below. Very interesting.
