Southern Pacific Railroad Depot

The Southern Pacific Railroad Depot in Yuma, Arizona, was built as a Spanish Colonial Revival-style station by the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1926. After Southern Pacific Railroad ceased passenger operations upon Amtrak’s start in 1971, the station housed the Yuma Fine Arts Museum. The depot was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The structure was razed in the summer of 1994 after a devastating fire damaged the building in the spring of 1993. Amtrak passengers are now served at the Yuma Amtrak station which consists of two open platforms and a tunnel. In 2009, the structure remains listed on the National Register of Historic Places-NRHP.
