Missouri Pacific Depot

I’m sure saving old buildings is a thing.

 I’m just not seeing much of it in my small town. There are plenty of grants out there but I suppose the investment of time is becoming too much for folks these days. So before another one bites the dust, I’m using it for this week’s Thursday Doors entry.

As the pictures says, this is an old depot that was once not so forgotten, the Missouri Pacific Depot. I’m sure these doors have stories to tell. I’ll leave you to wonder what they may be as I give you a few more pictures below.

A pretty hazy day with our unrelenting heat wave. I decided against filters this week. You’re getting the real deal.

The roof is in good condition, at least on this portion.

Many of the rails are gone but we still have these left.

  1. I love train stations. It’s sad to see them deteriorate and end up being torn down. The one in our town narrowly escaped that fate. It’s being restored but the plans for its use are sketchy. Even in this state, I think it’s beautiful.
