Significance: The Santa Fe Depot is a well planned and attractive early twentieth century railroad station. It is a very good example of the Mission style which flourished in San Diego at the time of the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition. Although "traditional" in design, symmetrical and monumental, it incorporated modern features for its date: a steel skeleton, easily maintained and permanent decorative materials, and an advanced layout allowing good circulation and separation of the various station functions.
