The present-day Nacogdoches Railroad Depot was built by Southern Pacific and opened April 3, 1911. Within a year of the original wooden building being built in May 1910, it burned to the ground after being struck by lightening. It was rebuilt with brick exterior walls. In August of 1954 the Southern Pacific terminated passenger services through Nacogdoches. Now, the railroad depot is the only surviving passenger depot on the old Houston East & West Texas rail line. The depot was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. Future plans for the depot include a museum depicting the importance of all transportation in the early development of Nacogdoches.
