The Pullman Depot Heritage Center is launching a ‘Fix the Bricks’ campaign to fund the preservation restoration of the Northern Pacific Railway Depot built in 1916. Estimated to cost $400,000, the exterior work comprises the first phase of the Facilities Facility Master Plan. The group is applying for a $257,000 Washington State Heritage Grant. The ‘Fix the Bricks’ campaign goal is $135,000.
Relocation of two rail cars exposed the front of after more than 25 years and revealed the need for masonry repair, repointing and replacement of damaged or missing bricks and stone. New roofing materials will replicate historic clay tile in scale, texture and color. The five step Facilities Master Plan outlines restoration, preservation and rehabilitation phases estimated at $4 million.
In addition to your generous donations we are
pursuing grants focused on historic restoration / renovation.
Will you travel along with us?
The depot will not be open for indoor visits until the WA State COVID-related health orders allow.
We anticipate re-opening in mid January. Until then we will continue to work on our on-going projects to restore and rehabilitate the depot and it’s grounds.
Stop by in the evenings to see the passenger car window silhouettes and caboose lights.
The Pullman Depot hosts events several times a year. Please visit our calendar for more details.
