History of the Hood River Depot
Built in 1911, this fine example of Craftsman style architecture is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The pride of the Oregon-Washington Railroad and Navigation Company that had merged its lines with the Union Pacific Railroad in 1910, it was reincarnated as the Mount Hood Railroad Depot in 1987.
