History Old Maricopa Station
Maricopa Historical Society

This photo from the 1890s looks east along the railroad tracks while a steam engine is stopped at the Maricopa Depot, on left. The Williams Hotel and Lunch Room can be seen on the right. The scene is dramatically different today as the State Route 347 overpass carries automobile traffic over the Union Pacific tracks. Down the tracks to the left is the Amtrak station, where passenger trains on the Sunset Limited route stop several times a week.
