The train depot was constructed in 1927 and was used as train station until 1991. It was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places in 1986, becoming one of six Delray Beach historic sites on the register. The city bought it in 2005 and had discussed setting aside $325,000 for renovations. The building was vacant and used by the city as storage of lawn maintenance equipment.
