Picture taken with my Canon Rebel 450D. This is the Snoqualmie Depot in Snoqualmie, Washington. The depot was constructed in 1890 by the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railway. The depot was later operated by the Seattle and International Railroad, Northern Pacific Railway, and the Burlington Northern Railroad.

The depot is an elaborate structure given the size of Snoqualmie in the 1890s and survived largely intact until the Burlington Northern Railroad abandoned the line and station in 1975.

The Northwest Railway Museum restored the Depot to its 1891 granduer in 1981. Restorations included the reconstruction of the distinctive turret above the ticket office and the re-addition of the two eyebrow dormers that were removed in 1948.

On a personal note I grew up just a couple of blocks from this old station and remember well when it was a functioning depot. Today it is a reminder of a bygone era, when in Snoqualmie, as the Northwest, timber was king!

Born and raised in the logging town of Snoqualmie, Washington (the logging days in Snoqualmie are mostly in the past now). I currently reside in Issaquah, Washington. My Canon Rebel 450D was a Christmas gift that has kept on giving me hours and hours of pleasure. I recently aquired a Canon 5D Mark II and I am now learning to use this awesome instument. I hope you enjoy these pictures half as much as I enjoyed capturing them!

    What an exquisite station, restored perfectly! A beautifully composed image that surely does this station justice!

  • Thank Pamela! This little part of town has lots of memories for this old guy. My Grandparents owned the pub across the street called Smokey Joes. Named for a fire there in 1959. I will get back there and get pics of it and the the Odd Fellows Hall (the town was full of them). BTW thank for the fave!
