story.    The Gainesville station was built in 1902 for the Gulf Coast & Santa Fe Railroad. It originally housed a Harvey House Restaurant until it                      closed in 1931. Though the station was unused by passenger trains from 1979 to 1999, it currently is in use for the Amtrak Heartland Flyer              passenger train and also houses a museum.

            "The Depot mural was another one that I almost immediately envisioned when starting to discuss this project. I wanted to show the history of              the Depot but also that it's still very much in use today."
