The community committee and design team focused on two major themes for this station. One theme - the importance of home, family and education - reflects the fact that the station is in an old South Oak Cliff neighborhood, dotted with churches, two elementary schools, a high school and small businesses.
Another theme - the importance of transportation and historical roots of the community - is emphasized because the station is just west of the Monroe Shops, eligible for the National Register of Historic Places because of its history as a repair shop for the Interurban rail line.
