The June 29, 1911 Anacortes American reported on the Great Northern Depot's opening, at 611 R Avenue: "New Great Northern Depot Opened; Is a Credit to City." In 1964, excursion trains brought visitors to the Arts and Crafts Festival (now known as the Anacortes Art Festival) from Seattle. This brick building served until regular rail traffic to Anacortes ended in 1978. The depot now serves as the Depot Arts Center.
