Alphabet Challenge – “W” is for Waxahachie Depot in Waxahachie, Texas
Waxahachie, TX - Waxahachie Depot - Serving the community as a stop on the Missouri-Kansas-Texas rail line for many years, hauling locally grown cotton to markets and local soldiers to and from several wars. Passenger service was discontinued in 1964 but the depot continued to service freight trains on their way through Waxahachie until 1988. In 2007 the land underneath the depot and the right-of-way were acquired from the railroads by the City of Waxahachie. The City then purchased the depot building in 2008 and started the restoration project. Construction planning began in 2009 and the actual construction on the depot began in early 2010. The restoration of the MKT Depot was completed in November of 2010.
