HISTORY

 Twice listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Sunset Depot in San Antonio was dedicated as "... a depot as handsome as can be found in the South..." with, possibly, the exception of the KATY Depot in the same city. The KATY is gone now, but the Sunset Depot here has been serving train passengers since January 31, 1903.
 The Sunset Depot was completed in 1904 and established for passenger rail service on Southern Pacific's "Sunset" route from Los Angeles to New Orleans.
 A number of celebrities and famous persons either stopped here to visit the city, or simply passed through, among these were presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge; and numerous Hollywood celebrities, including Judy Garland.
