Opened by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway in 1918, the Spanish Mission Revival style depot has been known to generations of travelers by its four domed towers.

On July 21, 2018, San Bernardino’s civic leaders and residents, joined by visitors from across Southern California, gathered to mark the centennial of the city’s railroad depot, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Following an extensive rehabilitation in the early 2000s, the building is today home to Metrolink, Amtrak, the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority, the Local Agency Formation Committee, the San Bernardino History and Railroad Museum and the Southern California Association of Governments.
