Notes
Survey number HABS IN-257
Significance: The building is significant as an example of early twentieth century commercial architecture and for its association with transportation history in the midwest. The Big Four Depot in Lafayette is one of only two similar structures in Indiana, which were once part of the New York Central System. It is an excellent example of the type of passenger buildings erected by the railroads in small and medium-sized communities during the early part of the twentieth century. For many years the station was one of several which served local passengers in Lafayette. It represented the presence of the New York Central line, a major artery from Cincinnati to Chicago. As a major stop on this important line, Lafayette's commercial interests and prestige were considered enhanced.
