Historical Buildings
Beeman Cashin Building

This wooden structure was moved to Depot Square in 1984 from its original location on the corner of Main and 10th Streets. Dating from 1886, the Beeman-Cashin Building was an implement depot. Today, it provides an indoor space for a variety of community activites: dances, melodramas, community workshops, meetings, art demonstrations, reunions, and was the site of the 5th Annual Renewal Ball.

Carnegie Building/Uinta County Museum

The Uinta County Museum is located in the historic carnegie building completed in 1906. A lovely example of classical revival architecture, the building was designed by New York architect Albert Randolph Ross (who also designed a carnegie library in Washington D.C.)

In 2008, an expansion of the building was completed. Designed by Jackson architect, Kirt Dubbe, the new building echos the historic features of the original structure and houses the Uinta County Museum and Evanston Chamber of Commerce.

Chinese Joss House

The Chinese Temple was constructed in 1874. Like temples in other Chinese communities of the American West, this Joss House was built by subscription, with each member of the Chinese community contributing in some way to the temples construction, decoration and furnishing.(This is a replica of the original Joss House)

The Chinese Joss House tells the story of the Chinese immigrants who lived and worked in Uinta County from the 1870s through the 1930s.

Evanston Depot

On September 13, 1989, the Union Pacific System donated its historical Evanston Depot to the City of Evanston. The Depot, constructed in 1900 and renovated in the late 1980s, is considered one of the most significant buildings in the downtown Evanston Historical District.

The ornate depot building is noted for its roof intersected with gables on either end. Other notable features include two brick towers with conical roofs. Today the building is used as a community center for public meetings and events such as weddings and receptions.

Evanston Machine Shop

Built in 1914 and once used as a repair facility by the union Pacific Railroad, Evanston Machine Shop was restored and converted into a multi-use public facility in 2004. The large enclosed interior space is illuminated by hundreds of windows in the facades of the building and in the roof. The warm, delightful space this building offers functions very well for large gatherings and has the capacity to serve groups as large as 400 to 500 people.

Evanston Roundhouse

Independence Day Celebration in Evanston in 1871 included the dedication of the Union Pacific Roundhouse and Machine Shop. In 1912, the present brick roundhouse and turntable were constructed to accommodate the larger steam locomotives being brought into service. The Roundhouse and associated structures served the UPRR as a main railcar and engine repair station and later as a reclamation facility.

In 1971, the UPRR officially vacated the Roundhouse, and the following year, deeded the properties (with the exception of the Power House) to the City of Evanston. From 1972 to 1998, the Roundhouse continued to be utilized as a repair station as several companies leased it from the city. In 1998, the last business vacated the site.

In 2004, a Master Plan was created designating the Roundhouse as a future public building and as a future city hall. With the completion of the nearby Machine Shop in 2005 and its parking area in 2006, it became evident that the time had arrived to save Section One of the Roundhouse. In 2007, the city was awarded a Wyoming Business Council grant to help renovate the 65,000 sq. ft. first section, and by January, 2008, project had begun.

In 2009, the community held the first event in the renovated first section of the Roundhouse: The 27th Annual Renewal Ball.
