Raton's distinctive Mission Revival style railroad depot is an interesting variation of the California Mission Style, which was adopted by the Santa Fe Railroad as its trademark architectural style in the 1890s. The Raton depot originally featured an octagonal waiting room with a tower roof which matched a soaring rooftop tower on the adjoining station. Rough Rider Theodore Roosevelt spoke to a large audience here in June 1899 on his way to the first Rough Riders Reunion held in Las Vegas.
