1886

— Union Pacific Blazes Trail to Future —

The Union Pacific reached Fremont in 1866. The new Union Depot was erected at a cost of $50,000 and gave the approach to the city a dignified and completed appearance, with its winding gravel walks, grass and flower plots and wide frontage.

As a center for some 23 passenger trains and 36 daily mails, with an even larger number of freights, the necessity of good depot accommodations was readily seen.

When the handsome new Union Depot was erected, the Union Pacific Railroad realized the need for a new freight depot to keep in touch with the progress and improved appearance in that portion of the city, and erected one at a cost of $10,000. In addition, they extended the capacity of the freight yards and added more track. The Union Pacific arguably has had the greatest influence toward the building of the city of Fremont.
