Long Description:
Information on the restoration of the Kingman Depot can be found at Great American Stations. (visit link)
"This one-story station was built in 1907 by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company in Spanish Mission style. The construction utilized poured concrete in an effort to ensure a fireproofed building. This was a calculated decision on the part of the railroad, as two previous stations had previously burned down on that same location upon contact with hot cinders from passing steam engines."


Historic photos of the train station can be found at the Kingman Historic District's Website (visit link)
