Union Pacific Depot*

(Old Spaghetti Factory - 110 E. Santa Fe Avenue)

Union Pacific was the last of three railroads that came to Fullerton. Work was begun on the depot in 1916, suspended during World War I, and resumed again in 1922. The building was finally completed in 1923 and opened at its original site west of Harbor Boulevard and south of the existing railroad tracks. In 1980, the Fullerton Redevelopment Agency moved the abandoned historic depot in two sections to its present site, losing not a single tile during the move. The former depot is one of the major examples of Mission Revival architecture in Fullerton. The building features a Zigzag Moderne design over the entrance, an octagonal dome topped by a small round cupola, parapet gable ends, an arched arcade, and a mission tile roof.
