Granbury's depot was constructed in 1914 and is an example of a typical Texas train station. The current building replaces an earlier depot, which was constructed in 1887 when the railroad first came to the area. It was destroyed by fire in 1912. The current structure was described as a "modern passenger and freight depot". The Ft. Worth and Rio Grande Railroad came to Granbury in 1887. To enable travelers to visit between Granbury and Ft. Worth, residents paid a railroad $25,000 to run a line between the two cities. This caused a growth spurt in Granbury and an economic boon.

The citizens of Granbury had to pay $25,000 for the railroad to stop in Granbury. That was quite a lot of money in the 1880's. This is just one of the facts I learned by reading the exhibits at the RR Museum. If you are interested in local history, this is a great place to get a little more of... More

Not worth driving to Granbury just for this attraction, but worth stopping by to see if already here. We've visited many museums over the years, but never an old Railroad Depot. Interesting pictures on the walls and apparently a true depiction of how these depots use to look. The place is nicely maintained.

My wife and I stopped by here just to kill some time. When we walked in we found a single volunteer working there. She was more than happy to give us a tour and tell us everything she knew about the local railroad. Which was a lot. I could tell she was passionate about the history of this railroad and... More

We visited this place, as I have an interest in the local history of Granbury, and my partner was interested in sourcing some family history. Very friendly people there, who chatted to us, showed us around the small station and talked very knowledgeably about the history of the station. There are 4 rooms to look at in this perfectly preserved... More
