Railroad Depot

JSDH article page 168
The new Southern California Railroad that was created by the Boston Syndicate owners of the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad built a depot in 1882 that today is the last remaining transcontinental station on the West Coast. The first transcontinental train from San Diego left this depot Nov. 14, 1885. Near the Depot the Syndicate built the International Hotel at 6th Avenue and 23rd St. in 1885. It later was moved to another location and renamed the San Miguel Hotel.
