Yes, the brick depot was in the northeast quadrant of the MC/AA crossing which I always thought was rather strange location as it was difficult to get to. I believe it was built in the first couple years of the 1900s. In the photo of the brick MC depot, the MC main is on the bay window side and the AA on the side with the people and the industrial buildings along current M-52 in the distance. There is a mention in the 9/1/1911 Railway Age Gazette that the Ann Arbor was preparing plans for a modern, two-story, fireproof passenger station to be built at Owosso this fall although I didnít find any mention in later issues that it was actually built.
