On this site stood the Colorado Central Railroad's "Quartz Mill Depot". The structure was constructed by William Loveland from the remnants of the New York Mill. To accomplish this, large doors were built into the building. The tracks, engineered up Clear Creek Canyon, reached the depot on December 17, 1872. The great stone depot served as Colorado Central Railroad's Clear Creek terminus until a track was built to Central City in 1878.
