Broomfield Depot Museum
|The mission of the Broomfield Depot Museum is to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of Broomfield while focusing on the railroad depot.
Constructed by Colorado & Southern Railway (C&S) bridge and building crews in 1909, the Broomfield Depot jointly served the C&S and one of its subsidiaries, the Denver & Interurban Railroad (D&I). The C&S provided standard rail service while the D&I was an electric commuter line between Denver and Boulder. The D&I was known as the "Kite Route" because its 51-mile route resembled a kite on a string.
