After the Hulah Dam was built the town of Hulah was displaced, and cattle and oil shipping fell off, so Santa Fe closed the feeder line to Hulah. The land and depot reverted to the Mullendores, descendants of the Brown-Buckboren family. In October 1983, Mrs. Kathleen Mullendore gave the depot to the Landmark Preservation Council of Bartlesville and the Council moved the depot to Johnstone Park.
