Rock Island’s depot in Booneville, Arkansas burned about 3-4 years ago but the frame still stands. The tracks ran to the right of the concrete platform. Tracks were taken up in the early 1980s. Unfortunately, the Booneville depot, shown to the right in a postcard image taken in 1983, burned down several years ago. The rock columns and part of the frame do still remain however. It is a shame to see this historic building lost to nature. The Spanish mission style was quite unique compared to other Rock Island stations in Arkansas.
