The depot at Flagstaff has been an integral part of the city since 1926, the year it was built by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company. This Tudor Revival brick building with its cross-gabled roof was designed by one of the railroad’s engineering staff. It stands at what has historically been one of the busiest railroad corridors for both freight and passenger rail in the United States. The station also serves as the city’s Visitors Center.
The station has undergone minor cosmetic repairs over the years and recent work has included restroom partition maintenance, repairs to wrought iron fencing and gates and improved doors.
Flagstaff’s history is intertwined with railroad development in the western United States. Settled in 1876, the town grew rapidly from its inception due to the east-west expansion of the railroad, which made Flagstaff a desired transit and transport location. The town continued to grow alongside the bustling railroads that ran through its territory and was incorporated as a city in 1928. Today, Flagstaff sits as the county seat for Arizona’s Coconino County.
Flagstaff is the home of Lowell Observatory where, in 1930, the former planet Pluto was first observed. Also, Flagstaff boasts a strong tourist center as a result of its convenient location to the Grand Canyon National Park, Oak Creek Canyon and historic Route 66. The city is also home to the Northern Arizona University.
The facility has a waiting room and is staffed by Amtrak employees.
Flagstaff is served by two daily trains.
