Denver Tramway Power Co.
162 // March 30, 2008
Anyone recognize this building? It’s the side of REI’s flagship building in downtown Denver. The building used to be the powerhouse for the Denver Tramway Power Co. back in the day, then was transformed into the Forney Transportation Museum until 1998 when REI started a two-year renovation on the building to become the ultimate outdoor activity and sports store in Denver.
I became interested after arriving home and found some historical links and images of this building way back when — enjoy.
A little bit of history of “Rail City” from DenverGov
