The Vancouver Train Station opened in 1908 in tandem with the train bridge which finally linked Oregon to Washington permanently for the first time. While this structure is not as vast as some stations it does have a striking appearance with great lines that were fun to paint.
I have struggled to find much in the way of its history, but i do know it was the local arrival place of some prominent people such as Empire Builder James J. Hill.
The station is owned by the City of Vancouver, and Amtrak still operates daily runs out of this location.
Careful restorations, mostly of the interior, were completed in 2008 and included refinishing the original maple floors, plaster repairs, custom solid wood doors, wainscoting and trim to match that of the early 1900's time period.
