The depot is on the Howard Branch of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. It was built to replace an earlier 1879 depot, located just to the north. Completed in 1917 at a cost of $20,000, the depot was part of a building boom in the area caused by the discovery of oil in Butler and Greenwood counties.[2]

Passenger service on the Howard Branch ended in the mid 1950s, the depot closed in 1971.[2]
