Chamber of Commerce (Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Depot)
A one story, 30-by-160-foot Prairie Style structure with a hipped roof and projecting bays on three sides of the waiting area was the standard Santa Fe design for larger towns, used for Rocky Ford's third depot. Red sandstone trim provides subtle contrast to the red brick. Railway Express built a separate freight depot to the west, augmenting the station's own baggage wing. Tom Morris, a Denver architect, redesigned the depot as an information center and Chamber of Commerce offices, with a new band shell for the adjacent town park.
