Union Pacific Railroad Depot, WY: Built in 1886-1887, the Union Pacific Depot in Cheyenne, Wyoming is a nationally prominent landmark that derives its significance from two principal areas: transportation and architecture. The Depot is the last of the grand nineteenth century depots remaining on the transcontinental railroad--one of the best articulated examples of the Richardsonian Romanesque style in the West, designed by one of America 's most distinguished architects at a pivotal point in his practice. It formed a strategic point along the Union Pacific Railroad, America's first transcontinental rail line, and was easily the Union Pacific's most grandiose facility west of its starting point at Council Bluffs.
