Description
Arcadia Santa Fe Station -- Originally located at First Avenue and St. Joseph Street, the Arcadia Railroad Station was built in 1887 by the Santa Fe Railroad. This is the artist's conception of the station as it might have appeared in the early 1900s, complete with gables, turrets and cupolas. The wood-frame, three-room structure was built to provide passenger service to and from Los Angeles. In later years, it was used exclusively for freight. In 1971, the building was moved to the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds in Pomona, where it was restored.
