Discovered this BM while walking around the Union Station.

On a nice walk with sister, her hubby, & ParkerSaru. Stepped close to building to get a shot of this benchmark. Found all 3 here and the meridian line. Amazing what they have done to make this depot more usable for today's needs.

Found while touring Denver, mostly on foot

In town for NCAA Basketball and figured I would do a bit of benchmarking as well.

The mark is still in good condition.

Found this by accident as well.  Didn't realize it was there until, well, I saw it.  Was the second on the building, and I thought "Hey, if there are two, perhaps there are three."  Moved on from there and so it was.

Found by surprise while waiting for a train. In good shape and I'm guessing it won't be moving any time soon.

photoMy shot of KK0352

should have looked up more benchmarks while doing the earthcache, but did not think of it. Happened to see this one and logged it.

Found this right away when survey guys where doing their job, and they told me where to find another on this biulding, but had no luck.

Quick trip to train station to pick up the three markers there.

Enjoyed visiting the station whilst doing the geology cache walking tour.

Cool station. Found while attending two conferences in Denver - Geological Society of America and National Collegiate Honors Council, 2007. Shout out to Penn State Brandywine!

At Union Station with historic designation on the West column and the benchmark on the East column.

Couldn't resist. Thought I'd stop at 4 but this makes #5 today. Neat building.

Interesting that the elevation was not posted... I wonder why... Great area!

A very popular benchmark. We found it as part of the Denver Earthcache search.

Found it, but had it confused with KK0353.

Looking NW from 17th Street at the front facade of Union Station.

easy find

easy find in good condition. gps reasding unreliable this close to a tall building, but the coordinates i got were pretty good, considering they are scaled, and only accurate to about 600 feet.

found this one easy from the description. the coords are off tho

Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1934 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
01/01/1955 by NGS (GOOD)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1955 AT DENVER. AT DENVER, DENVER COUNTY, AT THE EAST WALL OF THE UNION STATION BUILDING, 8 FEET NORTH OF THE CENTER OF THE NORTH ENTRANCE TO THE WAITING ROOM, IN THE EAST FACE OF A GRANITE PEDESTAL, AND ABOUT 3 FEET ABOVE THE SIDEWALK. A STANDARD DISK, STAMPED T 54 1934 AND SET VERTICALLY.

RECOVERY NOTE BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1991 RECOVERED IN GOOD CONDITION.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in 1992. * This is a POSTED BENCH MARK height. Code E indicates a distribution rate of 4.1 thru 8.0 mm/km.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (G = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
