Brenham Depot - 0002

Brenhambr/ Washington County, Texasbr/ 30 09.964' N 96 23.744' Wbr/ Directions: Start at the intersection of Commerce Street and Market Street. Go 150 feet south on Market Street. The building is on the right (west) side of the br/ Historical Marker: In the early 1860s, local residents built a county rail line to connect to the Houston amp; Texas Central Railway, which bought the line in 1869. Brenham became a regional distribution center, and its population grew dramatically. Circa 1916, the Hamp;TC, then owned by Southern Pacific Railroad Co., built this depot. Southern Pacific maintained a presence in Brenham until 1975. The brick rectangular building retains its original brick and limestone stringcourses and Prairie School influenced corbelled pendants. Today it serves as a reminder of the town's early growth as a railroad center.
