Glenwood Springs author Angie Parkison to present at Glenwood Railroad Museum

The events leading up to the arrival of railroads in Glenwood Springs in 1887 are the subject of an illustrated program to be presented by Glenwood Springs resident and author Angie Parkison. The program will start at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, at the Glenwood Railroad Museum, and is free and open to the public.

Author of “Hope and Hot Water — Glenwood Springs from 1879 to 1891,” Parkison will tell us about the anticipation and arrival of railroads to Glenwood Springs. She will show old photos of Glenwood before and after the arrival of the Denver and Rio Grande and the Colorado Midland Railroads, demonstrating the importance of railroads in Glenwood’s history.

The Glenwood Railroad Museum is located in the Glenwood Railroad Depot across the street from the Hotel Denver on Seventh Street. Entrance to the museum for this program will be from the trackside of the depot. Take the stairway located to the west of the depot and walk along the depot to the museum entrance.
