The town of Evanston came to be with the arrival of the Union Pacific Railroad. It was named for a civil engineer of the railroad, James Evans. With water and lumber near it became an easy refueling spot for locomotives. While trains no longer stop here railroad offices remain and the Town has refurbished the area making it a pleasant spot for locals to visit. Many events occur here with Thursday night summer concerts and farmers markets being two of them.
And this amazing tribute to the Chinese who helped build the railroad..
You never know what you will find when you travel. What a beautiful garden.
Next: Uinta County Museum, another gem.
