Portales Railroad Depot

East Region

Constructed 1913

By 1898, the railroad line between Roswell and Amarillo was completed, and a tent city trade center sprang up along the tracks at the present site of Portales. After the Belen cut-off line through Clovis became the popular east-west route through New Mexico, the Santa Fe railroad built a substantial depot in nearby Portales to service the Carlsbad line. Though the Portales depot is closed, the community has goals of moving the depot to another site to rehabilitate it, as it sits between two active tracks and is isolated in its present location.
