The La Posada, in Winslow Arizona, was the result of an ingenious turn-of-the-century partnership between the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad (ATSF) and the Fred Harvey Company. The ATSF did not initially provide sleepers or dining cars for its passengers, who were forced to rely on trackside establishments. In 1876, Fred Harvey took over the ATSF’s Topeka, Kansas depot, refitted it, and opened it as the first Harvey House.
