Southern Pacific Railroad Passenger Depot
Official Historical Medallion, Texas Historical Commission

This depot was built by the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1928 as part of its extension into the Rio Grande Valley. A fine example of Spanish colonial revival architecture, the depot features a tile roof, arcades, curvilinear parapets, and other ornamentation common to that style. The structure was used as a passenger depot until 1952. It now serves as a reminder of the railroad's impact on the development of Brownsville and the lower Rio Grande Valley.

So. Pacific Depot

Esta estaci?n de ferrocarril es una de cuatro que fueron construidas en esta parte de la frontera por el disenador Leonard B. McCoy. El estilo que fue usado en las cuatro estaciones es renacimento colonial espa?ol. Era un estilo muy popular en el peri?do de 1920. La extensi?n de las lineas de ferrocarril al valle en la primera parte del siglo fue un desarollo muy importante.
