Como Roundhouse

Built in 1881 by Italian stonemasons, the six-bay Como Roundhouse sheltered locomotives that battled their way over Boreas Pass. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is one of the region's best preserved railroad structures. A roadside exhibit at the south end of Como interprets the Roundhouse and other local resources. Como Railroad Days is held annually on the 3rd Saturday in August, and includes tours of the Roundhouse and several other historic railroad sites.
