The "Magic City of the Prairie" sprang up in 1867 when the Union Pacific Railroad arrived. Soon it was the hub on the transcontinental railroad, quickly becoming the richest city per capita in the world. The streets were filled with both fine millinery and the dust and dirt from cattle drives making their way from Texas.

|THE CHEYENNE DEPOT
Just blocks away from the Nagle Warren Mansion is the gem of Cheyenne, the historic Cheyenne Depot. Recently renovated, this historic old depot is now home to a variety of businesses including a new restaurant, The Snake River Pub & Brewery. You can eat dinner, enjoy a Cheyenne microbrew and watch the trains make their way through the train yards.
Need to know more about Cheyenne, the old ticket booth is now home to the Cheyenne Visitors Bureau staff who can give you all kinds of ideas about what to do while you’re in town. And on the west side of the building, you can visit the newly opened Depot Museum. Here you’ll learn about the old steam engines that moved people and supplies from New York to San Francisco and from Montana to New Mexico when Cheyenne was a hub on the Trans Continental Railroad.
The plaza in front of the depot is a great gathering spot for locals, especially during late summer months when the farmer’s market takes over the space on Saturday mornings or in the summer on Fridays when bands fill the air with great music.
While you’re at the depot, don’t miss going outside by the tracks. As you look across the rail yard, you can see the historic old round house where Union Pacific Railroad still maintains its steam locomotives. If you want a bird’s eye view of Union Pacifics operation, you can walk south up Warren or Central Avenue to the bridge and watch the trains heading both east and west with their cargo.
The area offers a large variety of birds. On the high prairie we find species like the Mountain Plover and a lot of raptors. Moving west just a few miles, you will find pine and aspen forests and a little further some sub alpine terrain. We have developed a guide to birding in the region Cheyenne, Nothern Colorado (all 8 miles south), Vedawoo, Laramie, Torington & the Goshen Hole, and Western Nebraska Birding in the Cheyenne Area.
