Cleveland did have a passenger depot, it was located south end of the main street(broadway.).When construction of Lake Keystone, the rail line was built up to higher ground, the depot was torn down. It was a Spanish brick style depot. A new depot was built just off of Jobo road, south of the Hickory House, it is still there, along with the old oil refinery. The Katy shut this line down in !977,and in November of 1974, flood waters down near Oklahoma City, cut the south end off. Trains after this only ran once a week to Cushing. The gazebo was built when they constructed the trail in 1981.
