1. Fourth Julesburg Marker
Inscription.  In the 1880's, a fourth Julesburg developed at the junction of the Transcontinental Railroad and the Denver Branch of the Union Pacific. Originally known as Denver Junction, the town was soon renamed Julesburg, presumably the last of Jules Beni's namesakes.

No matter what its location, Julesburg has always been an important waystation on the great Overland Route. From its early days as an 1850's trading post, a Pony Express home station, end of track for the Union Pacific Railroad, start of the Colorado Loop of the Lincoln Highway and continuing with today's modern interstate highways and telecommunications systems, Julesburg remains part of history in the making.
