These four photographs show the Union Pacific Railroad depot in Marysville, Kansas. This Spanish-Revival style depot, built in 1929, was designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood and features stucco walls with terra cotta ornate accents and a pantile covered roof. The depot was a hub for transportation until the 1950s when passenger rail services ended. The building has been vacant since 2009. In 2010 a group of concerned citizens formed a non-profit community preservation group called Landmark Enterprises with plans to restore the depot into a community events center. The group was unable to raise the money to buy the structure. However, in January of 2014, the Marysville Union Pacific Depot Preservation Society purchased the building for $20,000 from the city with plans to restore it to its "former glory."
