About abandoned properties: this railway station is on the National Register of Historic Places, but due to revitalization costs has fallen into major disrepair. The Joplin Union Depot was built in 1911, and in November 1969 the last train departed this facility. This structure has been abandoned and in a state of slow deterioration ever since.
There have been numerous talks and attempts at restoration, but nothing has come to fruition as of the time of posting this. See my Joplin Union Depot post for more history on this location.
