Description of Significance COMPLETED IN 1920, THE ROCK ISLAND DEPOT IS SIGNIFICANT FOR ITS ROLE IN TRANSPORTATION IN COTON COUNTY AND AS AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF STATION ARCHITECTURE ON THE ROCK ISLAND LINE. BEING ON THE RAIL LINE WAS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR IN HAVING WALTERS DESIGNATED THE COUNTY SEAT, TAKING THE HONOR FROM NEARBY RANDLETT. THE ROCK ISLAND CONSTRUCTED THIS FIREPROOF, PICTURESQUE DEPOT TO PLACATE THE TOWN AFTER THE PREVIOUS DEPOT WAS DESTROYED IN A FIRE. LISTED IN NATIONAL REGISTER 9/3/98.
