Designed by California architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood, Marysville’s Union Pacific Railroad Depot (1928-1929) is located adjacent to the former railyards on 7th Street, two blocks north of the downtown business district. The asymmetrical stucco, brick, and terra cotta building is of the Spanish Revival style. The single story steel-framed building stands on a reinforced concrete foundation and is roofed with red clay tiles. The depot is significant for its historic association with the growth and development of Marysville, Kansas, and as an excellent example of a Spanish Revival passenger depot. Regular passenger service was suspended in 1955, after which time the building continued to house offices for the railroad. The Union Pacific Railroad declared the depot surplus property, intending to demolish it. In 2015 a joint effort between the City of Marysville and the Union Pacific Depot Preservation Society saved it from demolition, and work commenced to restore the building and make it a community asset.
