The Grand Canyon railroad depot in Williams was built in 1908, and originally contained a Harvey House to help serve passengers on the Santa Fe Railroad. The building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is mostly original, as is the loading platform where visitors board the train.
Next door to the depot you'll find a small museum commemorating railroad history in Williams and the West, along with a display of a 1910 steam engine and a 1923 coach car. The depot is just across the street from the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel, and is only about 1/2 mile off Interstate 40 via Grand Canyon Boulevard.
