300 South Rio Grande Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84101
If it could talk, this old depot could tell many stories?of comings and goings, of immigrants stepping into new lives, men leaving for war and fewer men returning, people taking trips to visit family, businesspeople and politicians traveling. The Rio Grande Depot opened in 1911 as a grand entry into a city that had almost doubled in population in the previous ten years. And what an entry it was! Large and beautiful, in the tradition of major train stations, the depot must have wowed new arrivals.
