The St. Louis and San Francisco Railway Line built its first depot in Augusta in 1880, but that building burned in 1909. Plans for a new depot were immediately drawn up, and it closely resembled one of Frisco's six standard combination depots with a passenger waiting area at one end and a freight room at the opposite end. A detached baggage building was erected immediately east of the depot in 1917, and the two buildings were joined together under a single roof in the 1930s. Passenger service ended in 1960, and Frisco abandoned the building in 1984. It was nominated for its association with local transportation history.
