FREIGHT is situated in the shadow of Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive, Colorado’s highest fourteeners. A passenger train still puffs by the window every afternoon. The gorgeous, fully restored depot holds over 200 people, making it a perfect event venue, conference center or wedding venue in Leadville, Colorado. Along with the barn-like depot, the property includes an elegant courtyard, retrofitted Whisky Lime Lounge in a historic shed, and conference room for workshops and intimate family gatherings.
FREIGHT includes 4000 square feet of atmosphere. The historic timber floors have been caulked and sanded – perfect for a wedding dance floor! The outside courtyard has a stunning view of Mt Massive and is a great space for games, bands, fires, cocktail hour.
FREIGHT is a family run effort. The restoration was led by the Andersons and is now run by their daughter, long-time resident Elsa Tharp. FREIGHT is committed to serving the Leadville community and gives 10% of its efforts to local organizations.
