“Union Pacific Railroad station”
On May 4th 1868, a train whistle marked the arrival of the first train in Laramie on the newest section of the Union Pacific Railroad, whose builders were slowly progressing westward. A day later the line was closed due to a spring snowstorm. Despite this setback, settlers were not deterred from the newest town to be reached by the line, and two weeks later Laramie boasted a population of over 2,000 inhabitants, most of whom arrived by train. Getting off the train, the first building they would have seen was the Laramie station, which the railroad also operated as a hotel and restaurant, located at the foot of present–day Ivinson Ave.
