This train depot was originally located in Clyde, Texas. It cost about $40,000 to build.
The General Store where you purchase your tickets to tour the Taylor County History Center, was once connected to the depot. It was used to store large luggage, crates, and cargo. There is a second luggage room at the depot specifically used for smaller luggage. The two waiting rooms in the train depot were used to separate people of different races. Whites had one waiting room and blacks had another. At one point, the depot and the store building were located at a school and used by the Boy and Girl Scouts. When the Scouts stopped using it, the school wanted it removed so teenagers would stop using it for parties. At that time, Dr. Rode was able to buy the buildings and have both transported to the Taylor County History Center.
