This was once a tinyMagnolia Texas depot located along Hwy 249 town with the primary industry being sawmills. Early in the 1900's Magnolia was known as "Mink". The name of the town was changed in the mid 1900's. Sawmills need railroads so it was natural that the railroad should become an integral part of the community. Those days are long gone but the Magnolia Depot still stands as a tribute to that era. The Depot, as a result of the efforts of many community volunteers has been placed in its original location. The old depot which was once a hub of activity saw passenger and freight cars, filled with people, lumber, groceries, supplies, daily newspapers and just about any other necessity of the day rolled in and out. The depot now rests beside the tracks, with many trains passing through but never stopping for cargo or passengers.

Hi Sherri:  Thank you.  Sorry it took me a few days to answer you.  Our son is home on leave and my life has been topsy turvsy for the last week.

Learning to put the pics in was trial and error.  After much frustration I found this post by Krstal Kraft to be really helpful when I was first learning.  To begin with my pictures were huge and all over the place.  If you get stuck let me know.  It gets easier the more you do it.
