Constructed in 1909, the Hugo Union Pacific Railroad Roundhouse is one of only three remaining from the original pre-merger Union Pacific Railroad, with this being the only one in Colorado. It's one of only four historic roundhouses left in Colorado and the only one associated with the Union Pacific Railroad. It's also the only surviving brick roundhouse in the state and one of the most significant historical sites on Colorado's Central Plains.
Roundhouse Preservation, Inc. (RPI), a 501(c)(3) located in Lincoln County, Colorado received its non-profit status on March 20, 2002. Its focus is the preservation and restoration of the Union Pacific Railroad roundhouse in Hugo, Colorado. Even though the roundhouse is owned by Lincoln County, RPI has taken the lead in preservation of this historic structure.
Restoration Progress Report - Doors and Windows Phase
RPI has been able to complete the paperwork with the State Historical Fund and start the process of restoring/replacing/rehabilitating the doors and windows in the roundhouse. The initial meeting has been held with the Colorado Department of Transportation, a requirement since the project will be partially funded with Transportation Enhancement funds. On Tuesday, June 12, 2012 a Constructability Meeting will be held on the roundhouse site to gather input from potential contractors about how to proceed with the doors and windows.
