Texas - La Grange M-K-T (Katy) Railroad Depot
La Grange, TX - La Grange Railroad Museum. The La Grange M-K-T (Katy) Railroad Depot is located at its original site adjacent to the tracks at the intersection of North Washington and Lafayette Streets. The building, which has waiting rooms, an office and a freight area, was completed in November 1897 by the Taylor, Bastrop and Houston Railway Company to replace the town's first station, which burned in March of that year. The T,B&H was soon taken over by the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad. Passenger service continued until the 1950s and the depot received and dispatched freight as late as the 1970s.

Highlights of the museum exhibits include the original pot-belly stove, M-K-T safe, and stationmaster's desk, in addition to numerous historic photographs and a gold-headed can presented to James Converse in 1880 in appreciation of his successful efforts to bring a railroad to La Grange. There also are hands-on exhibits for both adults and children. The museum opened on April 29, 2006.

The museum collects artifacts and archival material from the railroad industry to exhibit and interpret their significance in American life and culture. Exhibits and general programs are provided year-round. Educational programs are available to local schools and universities through study trips, in-class programming & outreach, and online resources.

The Museum has embarked on its most ambitious project to date, the relocation of collections and operations from Dallas' Fair Park to Frisco, Texas – a suburb 30 miles to the north. The 1.8 acre Fair Park location was closed in November of 2011 to prepare the historic structures and rolling stock for movement. The Frisco site is currently under construction. The Museum currently maintains interim offices, exhibits, and retail at the Frisco Heritage Museum located a few hundred yards north of the new, permanent site. For additional information about the move, click the Frisco tab above.
