Create an itinerary including Grand Canyon Railway Depot
Take a step back in time at Grand Canyon Railway Depot, a national historic landmark at the end of the railroad tracks and within 100 m (330 ft) of the rim of the canyon. Dating back to 1909, the depot was built with logs and features a rustic interior with four rooms, a ticket office, a baggage room, and a small upstairs apartment. As one of the oldest surviving wooden train depots in the country, this is a great place to start exploring the history of railroads and their role in promoting U.S. National Parks.
