Print of a watercolor painting showing the AT&SF Depot and Sequoyah Harvey House, located at Syracuse, Kansas. The original watercolor was painted by Cecil Petterson. Petterson was born in Chanute, Kansas, in 1911. He served in the Army Air Corps during World War II and moved to Syracuse, Kansas, in 1948. There, Petterson established a medical practice, serving as a physician, surgeon, and optometrist. He died in 2011. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Depot and Sequoyah Harvey House at Syracuse opened in 1908. Louis Curtis designed the building. The site operated until 1936; the hotel and restaurant reopened briefly in the 1940s to serve soldiers traveling during World War II. The building was razed in 1972. Only a small portion of the west end remains today.
