Long Description:
The Hulah Santa Fe depot built in 1923 was moved from Hulah when the waters of Lake Hulah would have innundated it. For many years, it stood alongside an abandoned Santa Fe track northwest of Bartlesville, vacant and in disrepair.

It was then purchased by the town of Bartlesville, completely restored and placed on display in Johnstone Park north of Highway 123, east of the tracks in Bartlesville.

It is a lovely example of the many small, frame depots that were once scattered throughout Oklahoma.
