The Castle Rock Museum is a structure that is in its own right an artifact of the historical Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. Stretching between Denver and Old Colorado City (Colorado Springs), it was the first narrow gauge line in the United States. Its builder, General William Jackson Palmer beginning in 1871, chose select communities along its route for rail sidings or depots. The Town Castle Rock became one of several stops along railroad route, and in 1874 was designated as the county seat of Douglas County. The museum offers historical walking tours of the town and starting May 15, 2011 Trolley tours will begin in one hour intervals.
