Santa Fe Arts Center (Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Depot)

-A A +A
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Depot
1888. 2107 W. Powers Ave. (NR)

The railroad's in-house architects provided the plans for this one-story wooden depot with vertical board-and-batten siding and a gable roof. Like the nearby D&RG depot, it is a simple rectangle enhanced by a trackside bay window and ornate elbow bracketing for its overhanging eaves. Transplanted from its original location near Main Street it has been restored and recycled as an art gallery with an 1898 caboose for company.
