On June 6, 1947, a tornado hit the town of Julesburg. The tornado tore off part of the rail depot's roof before doubling back and destroying sections of the sidewalls. The depot remained open during the extensive repairs, and pieces of brick and tile from where the building had collapsed were reused in the reconstruction.
