Tigard Depot, Oregon Electric Railway


A view of three men standing just outside the Oregon Electric Railway's Tigard Depot. On the end of the building a sign reads 'Tigard.' Train tracks and electric power lines run along the left side of the building. The Germania Hall hotel can be seen to the back and left of the depot. The Tigard depot was located on the south side of the rail line, and was bounded by present day Main ST. (to the east), Pacific Highway (to the west) and Tigard St. (to the south). According to a November 20, 1907 article in the Oregonian, the electric railway's last spike connecting Portland and Salem was driven "near Tigardville."
