Friends of the Depot member Bennett Boeschenstein talks about future hopes for the old Grand Junction train depot behind him.


Plan to renovate Junction's historic train depot seems to be on track

Brown plastic shopping bags catch the breeze and bound along the sidewalk in front of the former train depot in downtown Grand Junction. Stickers have been slapped on some windows, and higher up, windows have been broken out or have long been boarded up.
Despite the years of neglect, the building at 119 Pitkin Ave. has an intrigue that is difficult to ignore.
Ornate designs of a wreath and garland are etched into the white terra cotta facade at the entrance. The 111-year-old building still features large, arched windows and a vaulted ceiling. Some of the original oak benches and stained glass windows are still intact, but much of the interior has been gutted.
The building has languished since the 1980s, with several buyers in the past decade promising to restore it. However, after owning the building for nearly a year, its newest owners, Dustin Anzures, 42, and his wife, Veronica Sanchez, 43, of Revolution Investments, LLC, of Phoenix, Arizona, say they will take calculated steps to restore the building to a community landmark.

Interior acts to rescind rule about energy valuation

The Interior Department on Friday moved to repeal a rule revising how coal, oil and gas are valued for federal royalty purposes, winning praise from U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, who has pushed for legislative repeal of the rule.
