DENVER – For years in the early 1900s, Denver’s Union Station was the center of town — the place where tourists and dreamers arrived looking to see the Rocky Mountains and maybe find a fortune.
Some 80 trains were arriving daily at Union Station in the 1930s and 1940s, but by 2012, there were just two trains a day and few people coming to Union Station.
However, that’s changed in the last year since RTD opened a transportation hub at Union Station and developers remodeled the station, adding more retail space and a luxury hotel.
While it’s a beautiful place to visit, we want to share some of the secrets of Union Station that you might not know. Let’s start in the big open Great Hall.
