Significance: It is significant as an execution of a standard Southern Pacific Railroad depot design in the early 1900s. The station is typical of depots of this era, but is architecturally unique within the Oregon context. Similar stations exist in Reno, NV, Ogden, UT, and Oakland, CA. The station has been in continuous use as a rail station since its completion in 1918, and retains its original architectural and functional integrity...
