Thematic Nomination: Historic Railroad Resources of Kansas

The Santa Fe Depot in Halstead is a one-story brick structure built in 1917. It is an example of a county seat depot and served both passenger and freight needs. These county seat depots were in more important towns and were often built of brick, some displaying architectural styles popular at the time. This depot features an eclectic mix of styles, but its wide overhanging eaves, large eave brackets, and tile roof reflect the influences of Craftsman and Prairie styles. It was nominated as part of the "Historic Railroad Resources of Kansas" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the areas of transportation and architecture.
