The depot was designed in the Mission Revival style, a popular architectural style in the early 20th century that was characterized by the use of Spanish and Mexican design elements, such as stucco walls, red tile roofs, and decorative tile work. The Winter Garden depot is one of the few remaining examples of this style in the area.
In the 1960s, the depot was closed and fell into disrepair. However, in the 1990s, the city of Winter Garden began a restoration project to bring the depot back to its former glory. The project included a complete renovation of the building, as well as the addition of a museum and event space. ChatGPT
