Holbrook was a train station in Holbrook, Arizona, United States, formerly served by the trains of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway prior to the creation of Amtrak in 1971.

History[edit]

The Atlantic and Pacific Railroad laid tracks through Holbrook in 1881. This station, built in 1892, replaced the earlier station. As traffic grew, additions were made in 1907 and 1912. Santa Fe continued to serve this station with the Grand Canyon until the discontinuance of that train in 1971.[1][2]

The station was restored in 2006.[citation needed]

After his surrender, Geronimo boarded a train for Florida at this station.[citation needed]
