Taking you down our Katy Trail this Thursday to the Katy Depot. Opened on May 10, 1896, it has stood the test of time. If you’d like to read more about it, check out
According to records, the last passenger train left the depot in 1958.
Lots of events and cool stuff to be found here if you’re ever in the area.
The Katy Depot of my childhood was in terrible shape. Flooded basement, broken windows, holes in the roof throughout and boarded up. A sad state of affairs that I wish I had a photo of to show you. Or maybe it’s good I don’t. If someone had told me back then that as an adult I’d be entering these doors for an event dressed in period clothing of 1900 performing my banjo, I would have never believed it. A bit surreal but it made some great memories.
The fully-renovated Katy Depot brings back its old glory days.Today, Sedalian’s have a great source of pride that it is being utilized in so many ways that include preserving a bit of our history.
