This station was constructed in 1870 as a stop on the First Transcontinental Rail Road. It was built by the Union Pacific in Utah, for access to the nearby silver mines. Legoredo was the name of a nearby U.S. Army fort, and was picked as the name of the new town. The line it is on is now served by Brick Railway Systems.

The station's design is a simple one, with a turret on top of the station for the telegraph operator, which later became a dispatching center and eventually a station master's office with dispatching duties moved to the nearby Legoredo Tower. (built 1938) The station does retains switch control for a industrial siding for the Legoredo silver mines' smelting plant and a passing siding so passenger trains can stop at Legoredo and not block the busy main line.

The street entrance has a small staircase to the station building, with the ramp being a latter addition of around 1973. There is also a yellow mail box on the platform.

The inside features two rooms: the ticket office (employees only) and the quite small waiting room. The upper floor features the office of the station master, with the switching computer linked to the Master Computer at the tower via wi-fi and a emergency cable, just in case the wi-fi goes down.
