The Tooele Valley Railroad Complex, 35 N. Broadway in Tooele, Utah, dates from 1909. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
The complex is operated as the Tooele Valley Railroad Museum. Opened in 1983, the museum is operated by the city and features preserved locomotives, equipment and artifacts from the Tooele Valley Railway and other area railroads, and smelting and mining artifacts.
The complex is significant for its historic role in conversion of Tooele from a farming-based to an industrial town. The railroad depot was the headquarters of the Tooele Valley Railway; and is the most significant surviving artifact with association to the smelter east of Tooele that operated from 1910 to 1972.
The listing included three contributing buildings and four contributing objects. -- From Wikipedia
