Who We Are...

The Historic Union Pacific Depot was built in 1929 as the passenger station for the Union Pacific Railroad. It was designed by renowned architect, Gilbert Stanley Underwood and is on the Kansas Historic Register. Saved from the wrecking ball in 2012 by the Marysville Union Pacific Depot Preservation Society it serves as a beautiful venue for the city and for private events.

What We Do


We make sure your special day is booked and reserved from 9 a.m. the day before the wedding until noon the day after the wedding. We not only have the tables and chairs set up and the linens in place but we also complete the table setting at your request. We set up the buffet tables complete with the lit table skirts and make sure everything is ready for the caterer. And the best thing .....we clean up after you have completed your celebration.

How Long Can My Celebration Last?

We ask that all celebrations end and that guests depart the Depot at Midnight

What is the Cost to Rent the Depot for a Wedding?

It depends if you choose the inclusive Wedding Package or if you just rent the space.
The price of the Wedding Package varies according to the number of guests starting at
$5,000 for 100 guests. The cost to JUST rent the Historic Depot from 9 a.m. the day of

Our multi-room floor plan is perfect for your next Fundraiser. The Grand Lobby is a beautiful venue for your gala, and the Archives Room allows you space to set up the silent auction. The Trainmen room with entrance and exit doors makes a perfect location for a buffet. Bool today for  2024-2025.

The Historic Depot has become a popular Venue for Community Events. We served the community as the mass COVID vaccination location and host of the Harvester Food Pantry on the first Monday every month. We have also participated in the Community fun events like the "Squirrels Just Wanna Have Fun, The Gravel Dash, The July 4th Road Rally and Black Squirrel Night.

Having a Birthday, Anniversary or a Reception? The Historic Depot is a perfect place for a large reception in our Grand Lobby, or a smaller venue in our Archives Room or Trainmen Room. Tables, chairs, linens and decor is part of our rental fee. Our Event Team will make your event one that will be remembered!
