|Title||Northern Pacific Railway's East Auburn depot, Auburn, 1922 |
|Caption||Depot and telegraph office at East Auburn. Telegrapher Redmond H. Cosgrove standing in front with daughters Louise and Marjorie Cosgrove.|
This depot building was moved around 1945 (wartime) and is now used as a home on I street between J and K.
East Auburn depot was used for passengers changing trains to go to Tacoma - a transfer station with a telegrapher's office and a room off the end for railroad workers to obtain shelter or rest. When telegraph service was discontinued a smaller shelter was built for use by the public at the same location which remained in service until the end of Amtrak operations in 1981.
