Designed in 1955, Lawrence’s Santa Fe Depot replaced an 1883 building that once stood at this location. The passenger depot is an excellent example of “Midwestern Modern” Mid-Century Modern architecture that captured the American imagination in the 1950s and is a Model representation of the great cultural change that transformed American life after World War II, especially in Lawrence. The building has changed very little on the exterior, and it retains almost of all its original interior design and materials. The depot is significant for its architecture.
