Great Bend, KS

Great Bend's passenger station, built in 1911, followed a brick county seat plan generally similar to Cherryvale, KS and Plainview, TX, but with a number stylistic differences, not the least of which was white bricks instead of red. Across the street to the west stands the frame freight house, which may well have been rebuilt from the passenger depot that preceeded the white brick structure. Another ghost of times past was the Roberts & Shaefer design coaling tower, located in the small yard west of the depots.
