Nice to see this station depot in its restoration status. Some historical information about the depot and Willcox. You can see a 13 minute video about the depot and town narrated by Rex Allen. Much of the depot now is used for city offices. If walking the old historical town, check out the depot.

In the heart of the Willcox Historic District and near the museum attractions this vintage rail station reminds me of those old westerns where the bad guys wait for the train and then terrorize everyone in town until our hero shows up to deal out justice. We watched a freight train buzz by with what seemed like hundreds of cars,... More

Nice picture opportunity with a few railroad artifacts inside but the depot today is used for City of Willcox offices, so really not much to see. No cost to enter and look around.

Willcox hosts 2 Wine Country festivals each year in Railroad Park. There is a $15 fee for 6 tastings and a commemorative glass. There are numerous wineries in the area, with full bottles available for purchase at the festival. Food is also available onsite. Many of the locals are attired in colorful period dress - cowpokes and saloon girls. Rex... More

This is a bit deceiving as it is not really a museum. It is however a great space as this old depot now houses town offices. There are a few piece written, and pictures, on the history of the depot and its evolution and restoration. It is worth checking out if you are investigating old town Willcox anyway.

there really is not a depot in town, there is a little area in the building where it shows some things about it, I had believed there was an actual museum of the depot

We saw it in the evening after it was closed -- it is the city hall and offices were closed for the day. Many rose bushes were blooming in gardens around the pale yellow depot.

Trains don't stop here any more. I have seen very few trains stop here. When I stay in Willcox I am 12 miles from town. I have to travel by depot to get to I 10. I have been stopped here for a train only once. People in town are friendly.

Great old train station! The street where the train station is is somewhat restored into the way it probably looked in the 1920s or 30s. Pretty neat. Rex Allen's horse, KoKo, is buried right across the street from his museum in a little park with a bronze of Rex and his guitar.
