The Lynwood Pacific Electric Railway Depot at its original location in 1933

Prior to the establishment of service on Metro Green Line, the location served as Lynwood depot, a station on the Pacific Electric's Santa Ana Line serving the West Santa Ana Branch. At some point after service was discontinued,[when?] the small mission revival station building was relocated to Lynwood Park to make way for the Century Freeway, where it still stands to this day. The 1917 depot, one of only several in the area which survived the devastating 1933 Long Beach earthquake, has been registered as a historic American building by the Historic American Buildings Survey.[2] It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
