Burton Depot

Burtonbr/Washington County, Texasbr/30 10.888' N 96 35.801' Wbr/Directions: Start at the intersection of Washington Street and Railroad Streets. The depot is on the southeast corner of the br/Historical Marker: Burton began as a terminal on the Houston amp; Texas Central Railroad in 1870. A depot, built that year, burned in 1898 and was replaced by this structure. Built according to standard plans of the Southern Pacific Railroad (which absorbed the Houston amp; Texas Central), it exhibits elements of the Queen Anne and Italianate styles. Outstanding features include wide overhanging eaves and quot;sunburstquot; gable windows typical in Southern Pacific structures.
