Notes
Survey number HABS OR-148
Significance: The Springfield Depot is built in the Stick Style commonly used in construction of railroad stations throughout the United States. This aspect is important when weighted against the similar railroad stations in Oregon. They too were built in the Stick Style of architecture. The Springfield Depot also has elements of Queen Anne Style with its wood frame and exterior features of horizontal V grooved shiplap siding, lath work and imbricated shingling. The Springfield Depot is the last remaining stick chalet with Queen Anne tendencies in train stations remaining in Oregon. In addition, it is the only remaining two story depot in Oregon which had living quarters for the Station Master. It also is the only commercial structure of this style in Springfield. The Springfield Railroad Depot is significant to the commerce industry and transportation development for the City of Springfield. The Depot is extremely important to the development of the City of Springfield. It arrived during the time of the railroad boom in the west. The coming of the railroad brought about growth to the City after years of stagnation. The structure is presently listed as a city landmark and is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
