Granger Stage Station, located in Granger Wyoming is a structure that is made of lime-sand mortor with two foot thick walls. Initially, fur trappers were traveling through the nearby Green River in 1824. Eventually the general area became a commonly used meeting spot for fur trappers in the area by 1834. As emigration picked up pace through the 1840s, from travelers of the Oregon Trail, a place was needed to accommodate the weary and exhausted travelers. By 1856, a station was built for stage couches and also served a dual function as a post for the Pony Express during the time frame of 1860-1861. By the year of 1868, and with the Union Pacific Railroad having a route built through the area; Granger Station became an active rail line station.

Accommodating the needs of the Pacific Union Railroad, a small rail camp was built nearby along with additional station buildings and a water tank for locomotives passing through. Granger Station had become a vital necessity for the Union Pacific Railroad and the workers of the Railroad who utilized its services and accommodations.
