Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroad Passenter Station is located on 1501 Jones Street in Fort Worth, Texas. The depot was built by the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroad (a subsidiary of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway) in 1900[2] and renovated in 1938. The station was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.[3] From 1973 to 1995, it was used as an Amtrak station. In 1999, it passed into private ownership, and became an 800-seat venue for weddings, corporate dinners, and other special events, under the name "Ashton Depot".[4]
