This wooden frame depot is typical of most small town stations of this era. The depot and water tower was [sic] originally built in the 1880s and was located about ? mile south. The depot was torn down and moved in 1941. Due to the shortages caused by World War II the lumber and parts were recycled into the present structure. The railroad sold the depot in 1959 and it was used for hay storage. In 1996 the John Thompson family donated the depot to the Heart of the Heartlands. The depot was moved back to the tracks and restored and is now listed on the South Kansas Oklahoma Railroad timetable.
