Presented by Bob Schoppe in the Historic Park Log Chapel

Bob Schoppe and Dr. Sandie Mather’s book, “Summit County Narrow Gauge Railroads,” tells the story of the two railroads that fought for dominance in Summit County. The Denver, South Park & Pacific and the Denver & Rio Grande operated in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Guests will learn how both railroads improved the living conditions, enabled local economies, and maintained the railways under harsh conditions.
