Historic Santa Fe Depot gets special recognition
SAN BERNARDINO – (INT) - The Santa Fe Depot in San Bernardino will be featured on a new U.S. stamp commemorating historic railroad stations across the country.
The U.S. Postal Service will honor San Bernardino’s Mission Revival-style passenger terminal among five other architecturally significant stations that continue to play important roles in their communities. The others are in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and Ohio.
“We are honored to have our beautiful station showcased for all to see. The Santa Fe Depot is an icon in our community and an important transit center enjoyed by thousands of passengers every year,” said San Bernardino Mayor Helen Tran.
The Santa Fe Depot opened in 1918 and at the time was the largest railway station west of the Mississippi River.
It now serves as a major passenger station for Metrolink, Amtrak and Greyhound along with bus transit stops in the surrounding area.
