Day 6 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ Train Spikes

In 2003, when Broadway was under construction, a former Boulderado employee unearthed a pair of railroad spikes at the northeast corner of Broadway and Pine, near the Trinity Lutheran Church. The Denver & Interurban Railroad began making hourly trips between Denver and Boulder in 1908, one year before the Hotel Boulderado opened. These train spikes are now housed in a display case found at the hotel's south entrance to the lobby.
