— 1989 Washington State Centennial —

The station was completed in 1906 for James J. Hill and his Great Northern Railroad. The depot and the vast freight yards were built on the reclaimed tide flats adjacent to a newly developing warehouse and industrial district near Pioneer Square. Designed by the St. Paul firm of Reed and Stem, the depot's modest Neo-classical style is in dramatic contrast to the 245 ft. clock tower modeled after the campanile of the Piazza San Marco in Venice.
