Railroad Station History

Thursday, May 30, 2019

A visual tour in photos and video of Eugene's historic railroad station.

The current Eugene Amtrak station is one of five masonry stations remaining along the original Southern Pacific Railroad’s west coast line from Portland to San Diego. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008, it was built in 1908 and purchased by the city of Eugene in 2003.

Before remodeling, the local Emerald Photographic Society won the bid to document the historic structure. See their work when members of the Emerald Photographic Society give an illustrated talk in honor of Historic Preservation Month.

This event presented in partnership by Eugene Public Library and the City of Eugene Historic Review Board.
