The Lebanon Southern Pacific Railroad Depot is a former railway station located in Lebanon, Oregon, Oregon, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1] It was constructed in 1908 for use by the Southern Pacific Company (SP), to replace an 1880 depot that had become too small for the amount of traffic it was handling.[2] It was designed from the start to serve both freight and passenger traffic. The building ceased to be used by passenger services in the mid-1950s, after which it remained in use as a base for freight operations. The depot closed in 1985 and was then vacant for several years, until the City of Lebanon purchased it from SP in 1996.[2] It was added to the NRHP in 1997.[1][2]
