Snyder Railroad Depot on state's endangered historical site list

SNYDER, TX (KCBD) -

It's one of the first sights you see on the way into the community of Snyder. This year the Santa Fe Railway Depot in Snyder turns 100. Back in February, Preservation Texas put the depot on the list of Texas' most endangered historic places.

The building is currently boarded up and is slowly deteriorating. The Snyder Depot was one of four Santa Fe Railroad stations designed by Kansas City, Missouri architect Louis Curtiss between 1909-1911. Of the four Texas depots, only the Snyder and Post depot buildings remain.

The depot is more than just a building. It represents the railroad heritage of the community. Residents in Snyder hope that by making the endangered list will help bring attention and resources to preserve it.

Among the other endangered historic places to make the 2011 list:

  • Blas Herrera Ranch, San Antonio, Bexar County
  • Duval County Courthouse, San Diego, Duval County
  • Lodge Building, Waxahachie, Ellis County
  • Lubbock Post Office and Federal Building, Lubbock, Lubbock County
  • Mulkey Theatre, Clarendon, Donley County
  • Noah Cox House, Roma, Starr CountyOlivewood Cemetery, Houston, Harris County
  • Piano Bridge, Schulenburg, Fayette County
  • Roma-Cuidad Miguel Aleman International Suspension Bridge, Roma, Starr County
