The Historic Magnolia Depot.  Open Saturday and Sunday from 1 - 5 pm.  Make sure and look at the great pictures of the Hometown Christmas. 

Magnolia Depot

In case you don't know where this is, the address is 426 Melton Street, Magnolia, TX  77354.  This is near where FM 1774 and FM 1488 cross in downtown Magnolia.

Historical Marker

Here is a picture of the Historical marker on the back side of the depot.

 

caboose

You may have noticed the red caboose near FM 1774 as you were going to the Texas Rennaisance Festival.

pot bellied stove

Inside the depot there are display cases and artifacts.  It has been a while since I have seen a pot bellied stove.

magnolia depot sign

A close up of the sign on the north side of the depot.  Another sign says sweet potatoes and cotton were run on this line in the old days.

display case

I thought these ration books were interesting.  There were for gas, and I think I remember my Mother saying there were also ration books/stamps for butter, sugar and chocolate.
