37: Train station

    #37 - 87-8-20.jpg

    Description: When the Southern Pacific Railroad was coming to the east valley, they planned for a small station in Chandler.  Dr. Chandler saw the plans and refused to grant right-of-way until they built a station worthy of the town. Chandler’s railroad depot was eventually designed by prominent Phoenix architects Royal Lescher and John Kibbey. Built in the mission revival style, it welcomed many wealthy winter visitors coming to Chandler to stay at the San Marcos Hotel.
