    Old Santa Fe Depot - Vistor Center

    by Yaqui Updated Oct 12, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was such a find when me and my sister were just strolling around waiting for my niece to finish getting her assignments for her next clients. I was tickled to death to see that they put the Vistor Center in the old historic train Santa Fe Depot. The depot was built in 1907 (replacing the first built in 1887) by the Arizona Eastern Railway and also served as a telegraph office, Post Office, Well Fargo Express Office, and general store. Served in later years as a shipping point for local fruit, vegetables, and flowers. Closed in 1960, it is now the home of the Visitor's Information Center and on the National Register of Historic Places.

    The ladies in here were so helpful with so much information and tons of maps and tourist information. So make a point to wonder by and say hello to the very lovely souls in here.
