General Information: The present-day brick depot was built by Southern Pacific and opened April 3, 1911; less than a year after the original wooden building, built in May 1910, burned to the ground after being struck by lightening. In August of 1954 Southern Pacific terminated passenger services through Nacogdoches. The railroad depot is the only surviving passenger depot on the old HE&WT line. The depot was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. Future plans for the depot include a museum depicting the importance of all transportation in the early development of Nacogdoches.
Mission Statement: It is the mission of the Nacogdoches Railroad Depot Museum, administered by the City of Nacogdoches, to collect preserve and interpret artifacts and oral histories relating to the history of the depot and railroads of Nacogdoches city and county.
