Long Description:
The ATSF depot is located at 300 W. Main Street, at the far west edge of town, just east of the railroad tracks. This is a one-story brick depot with a gabled roof. At the south end is an enclosed freight area with a flat roof. At the center of the east and west elevations is a raised parapet. The building has heavy bracketed eaves, painted white. The windows are segmented double hung, with segmented fixed pane windows in the upper gables.

The town of Mulvane was established in 1879 at the junction of five Santa Fe lines. The first depot consisted of two box cars end-to-end. They served as the depot until this building was constructed in 1910. The depot was operational until the 1970's. The facility was part of the Eastern Line, Middle Division, Third District, at Mile post 227.9 of the railroad line. Today, it is home to the Mulvane Historical Museum. (The museum is open Tuesday - Saturday from 10:00-4:00).
