"This is where you want to get off..."
This old postcard, picturing the Union Depot in Rosenberg, was mailed around 1907.
The handwritten message reads:
"Dear Clara, This is where you want to get off when you come to Texas. You can't make a mistake. It's the only place of its kind. Ha. Ha. Effie"
Rosenberg is still the place you want to get off, although the old station is long gone. Our museum building is modeled after the original depot. Rosenberg's Union Depot served the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific railroads from 1883 until 1917. It sat just north of where our museum building sits now. Union Depot was replaced by a stucco building on the east side of 3rd Street in 1917.
Other railroad buildings nearby were the Wells Fargo & Co. Express Building,
and the Harvey House Restaurant.
