The Depot Project: Creating a permanent home for Telluride Science and preserving a nationally historic building for public use.

TSRC closed on the purchase of the historic Telluride Depot on October 16, 2020. Because of the extraordinary support of our donors, the historic and iconic Depot will be the new permanent home of Telluride Science and will remain a community resource available to the public.

Currently, the board and staff of TSRC is pleased to have been able to make the Depot building available to the Telluride Medical Center for use as an interim clinic during the pandemic. When the COVID-19 crisis ends, the Telluride Medical Center will vacate the Depot, and Telluride Science will transform the building into the Telluride Science & Innovation Center. The Depot will once again be a hub of important exchange. Where once precious minerals were shipped out from the beautiful Telluride box canyon, soon we will export ideas that will change the world. The Depot will be a center for accelerating the advancement of science and technology, a force multiplier for scientific productivity, and a vibrant community space to gather and share information and inspiration.

The Depot purchase was made possible by the success of a three-year phase of the project's capital campaign. Fundraising for the $5.5M Renovation Phase of the campaign is just beginning. Please contact Mark Kozak, TSRC's Executive Director to learn more about this exciting project and how to get involved. We welcome your support!.
