The old 1901 Missouri Pacific railway depot was an important link for old-timers in Rusk County, Texas. World and local news, gossip and local business concerns traveled by the train to the citizens. Today The Depot Museum is your ticket to East Texas Heritage. This Living History Museum houses Rusk County History and offers education instruction for Folk Arts. Clustered on 5 acres, twelve historic, restored structures from the past tell the tale of the earliest residents of Rusk County - an intriguing blend of Native Americans, Frontier Pioneers, Southern Farmers and Oil Hungry Wildcatters!.
