Lawrence (also called the Santa Fe Depot or the Santa Fe Station) is a train station in Lawrence, Kansas, United States. Amtrak's Southwest Chief train uses it. The Lawrence station was built in 1956 by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway to replace the Atchison Topeka Santa Fe Station built in 1883. That station was damaged by the 1951 flood. It was dedicated on February 7, 1956. The Mid-century modern station is on the National Register of Historic Places.
