New sign goes up at the Museum!
We want to send a BIG THANKS out to Mike Davis for sponsoring the new sign. Mike is a real pro when it comes to billboards, and his efforts will benefit the Museum for many years to come. We also want to thank RRM Board Member Bob Vogelsang for coordinating everyone involved in the project. Thanks also to RRM Board Member Sandi Paulus for creating the art for the display.
Our 2013 Gala was a real Circus!
The Board of Directors of the Rosenberg Railroad Museum are very grateful for the community support at the 2013 Annual Gala held on Saturday, October 12th at Safari Texas in Richmond.
“The Rosenberg Railroad Museum hosts a major gala annually to raise funds to create and maintain educational and safety programs for children, celebrate and acknowledge the importance of our county's history, and offer a historic and beautiful experience to our visitors."
As our museum continues to grow and expand we need the support of the community to help us achieve our goals. Our strategic plan will enable us to increase scouting badge programs, bring new exhibits and educate more children. In addition, the work of the board of directors and the members is becoming recognized for their outstanding commitment and vision in the creation of the Rosenberg Railroad Museum, as other people seek guidance and advice on the preservation of their own community's railroading legacy.
We thank you for your commitment to Fort Bend. Together we will preserve the rich heritage of the railroad industry for generations to come.
Coming Soon! ... our Gala 2013 page of photos of the event.
We know we will remember this evening for a long time to come!
"This is where you want to get off..."
This old postcard, picturing the Union Depot in Rosenberg, was mailed around 1907.
The handwritten message reads:
"Dear Clara, This is where you want to get off when you come to Texas. You can't make a mistake. It's the only place of its kind. Ha. Ha. Effie"
Rosenberg is still the place you want to get off, although the old station is long gone. Our museum building is modeled after the original depot. Rosenberg's Union Depot served the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific railroads from 1883 until 1917. It sat just north of where our museum building sits now. Union Depot was replaced by a stucco building on the east side of 3rd Street in 1917.
Other railroad buildings nearby were the Wells Fargo & Co. Express Building, and the Harvey House Restaurant.
