Comments/Directions: The Galveston Harrisburg & San Antonio Railway built the depot in 1912/13 to accommodate passenger service on the Victoria/Rosenberg Division and Wharton/Palacios branch line. The depot sits on the "Macaroni line", named to honor the 1,200 Italians who helped build the track for the New York, Texas & Mexican RR in 1882.
The depot will service as a local transit center and the Wharton Railroad Museum . The Kanas City Southern -TexMex Railway is donating the depot and is currently rebuilding the Macaroni line. Full operation of line is scheduled for 2008/09.
