We are absolutely thrilled to release this oral history "I Lived in the Rico Depot" presented by life-long Colorado resident, Joanne Branson Smith. Joanne's earliest memories of childhood are of her adventures in and around the Denver Rio Grande Southern (RGS) railroad depot in Rico, CO. Joanne gave this talk at the Museum in November, 2022 and volunteer Larry Bollinger has done an amazing job to preserve her memories. You can watch it on our Youtube channel here.
