Info on possible history of a old train depot in Pendleton, Oregon

From: "Darrel MCcLURE"

I live in a house that was built in 1895, along the railroad in what is now the SE part of Pendleton, Oregon.  I have been told that it was at one time owned by the railroad, and was either a depot or a boarding house for the workers.  I'm unable to find any history on my house.  If this is true I'm interested in getting the history of the house and pictures of it.  I'm not sure if the railroad was the original owners or if it was bought from someone else.  If the railroad did buy it from someone else I would like information on who it was bought from also.    

Thanks for your time

What is the street address and cross street?

The first thing to do is to find your title insurance policy from when you bought the house. This should include a title search that gives you the history of all the previous owners. What does that say? – Does that show ownership by the railroad?

Our street address is 1603 Se Court Pl. Pendleton, OR. and the cross St. is Se. 17th. there's a box there that controls the arms that they work on sometimes also.
