Description 

The Sylvan Grove Union Pacific Depot is located at the south end of Sylvan Grove's Main Street business district in Pleasant Township, Lincoln County, Kansas. The building is in its original location situated between two sets of rails, but these were removed following a flood in 1993. The line was originally known as the Salina, Lincoln & Western Railway Line, which later became a part of the Union Pacific Railroad. The wood-frame building has a gable roof with eave brackets, and the only renovations to the building of record include electrical re-wiring, installation of a tin roof, and the addition of an open-air lean-to along the north side. There is a small open space/park area north of the depot. The lot, which includes the depot and adjoining open space, measures 198' x 142'.
