Notes
Survey number HAER WA-13
Building/structure dates: 1907 initial construction
Significance: The Yakima Valley Transportation Company is one of the country's last intact, authentic electric interurban railroads. It owns the oldest, regularly-operating locomotives (75 years old) in conjunction with a Class 1 railroad in the United States. Since the period of the railroad's construction in the early 1900s, it has not undergone any major changes except for a reduction in size. It is an outstanding example of typical early twentieth century American interurban railroad construction and operation. The railroad and its rolling stock, buildings and appurtenances were deemed eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
