Arvada Station

Address: S. of Grandview Ave. at Vance St., Arvada

Named for the town in which it was located. In 1902 this station was situated along the Tramway Cut, and one had to climb the steps to the Grandview Avenue trestle. Today the "Cut" has been filled in and is known as Wadsworth By-pass. Arvada Station was moved to Vance Street, south of Grandview Avenue, when a spur was built in 1916. The tramway was put in reverse until it connected with the original track to Leyden.
