Inscription.

An Interurban Train Depot once stood just east of this location. Erected in January 1913 by the Kansas City, Clay County and St. Joseph Railway, the depot served as a terminal for passenger and freight service as part of an electric railway that connected Kansas City and neighboring towns. Regular service was maintained from 1913-1933 when improved roads and affordable automobiles rendered the system obsolete.
