Comments/Directions:
The Frisco built their Freight Depot after acquiring in 1903 the Ozark and Cherokee Central (O&CC) rr, which had built lines east to Fayetteville, AK in 1901. It is a relatively long and narrow (50' x 200') brick structure with a 2 story administrative section at the east end and 11 freight bays. It is a rather plain red brick warehouse building with minimal decorative embellishments or high style architecture. It is listed on the National Register as part of the Muskogee Railroad and Freight District (2001). Owned by the city, it currently is occupied by a music and event establishment - the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame & Museum has operated since about 1996. The freight depot was substantially remodeled and enlarged about 1920, at about the period when the MV built their extant depot that sits diagonally across the intersection of So. 3rd St./Elgin Ave. Also, across 3rd St. from the Frisco freight depot sits their extant Frisco yard office building (steel siding and roof). A steel, cupola wide-view caboose sits south of the depot and is attached to the south side of the building. The 2-mile segment of the "Centennial South" hike/bike trail runs from 4th Street at the freight depot heading west to 32nd Street (US 69/64).
