The Southern Pacific Railroad Depot, constructed in 1891 and recently moved to a site between South A Street and the railroad tracks, is the only identified remaining resource associated with early rail transportation. The depot’s new location is not far from its original site. The wood-frame depot has the characteristic features of the Stick architectural style, which includes multiple gable roofs, drop siding combined with “stickwork” and shingling, vertical composition, and Eastlake decorative elements such as spindles, cutouts and bracketing. The Stick style was popular in Oregon from about 1870 to 1900 and is a style often found used for railroad depots.
