Cheyenne Depot Museum
In its prime (ca. late 1800s), the Cheyenne Depot was a gateway to the West and considered to be one of the most beautiful railroad stations in America. The long front elevation with pristine sandstone masonry straight up says, “I’m a beautiful railroad station.” And it was designed by hot shot Henry van Brunt.
Correction: No, we did not fail geography class in school. But yes, the original version of this story did name the Nelson-Atkins Museum's Bloch Building in Kansas City, MO, as the most beautiful building in all of Kansas. And for that, we apologize. Go Jayhawks!
