Join us Friday, June 7, at noon, for our Sandwiching in History tour of the Choctaw Route Station (Sturgis Hall at Clinton School of Public Service)

This beautiful building was constructed ca. 1899 to serve passengers of the Choctaw, Oklahoma and Gulf Railroad. In 1902 it became the property of the Rock Island Railroad and served as a major passenger depot on that line into the 1950s. Rail service officially ended in 1967, and the property was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. The brick building is embellished with exceptionally ornate terra cotta details, exhibiting the influence of the architect Louis Henry Sullivan in its floral and fruit designs. Today it is home to the Clinton School of Public Service and remains one of the finest examples of railroad-related architecture in Arkansas.
