This is Corona Historic site #13, site of the Sante Fe Railroad Depot located on Depot Drive (formerly Railroad Street), south of the Santa Fe tracks. Two structures were built here. The current structure was built in 1937 at a cost of $35,000 in Spanish Revival-style architecture to commemorate an anniversary of Corona’s founding. Passenger service ended in 1968 and freight stops ended in the early 1980s.
This monument and marker were placed March 5, 2007.
