What exactly is a depot and what is it for? Using images of depots along the Eastern and Western Lines of the AT&SF Railroad, Bob Walz will examine the history of the development of Santa Fe depots, from repurposed boxcars to large, ornate depots and everything in between. Walz’s presentation will explore the architectural influences in early wood-frame depots, the “system standard depots” developed by the Santa Fe, and the non-standard depots that were built by railroad lines the Santa Fe acquired over time.
Beginning at 2 p.m., FCHS will offer a short welcome, which will be followed by Walz's presentation. No registration is required to watch the meeting via the Facebook at https://facebook.com/olddepotmuseum. The program is free and open to the public.
