Also see . . .  Tulsa Union Depot on Wikipedia. On May 13, 1931, more than 60,000 people turned up for the opening of Tulsa Union Depot. At one time, this served 36 trains a day. By 1967, it was closed due to the decline of rail travel. In 2004, the old building became the new home to the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame. However, by 2021 the HOF filed for bankruptcy, leaving its future undecided. (Submitted on April 20, 2021, by Jason Voigt of Glen Carbon, Illinois.)
