"The three pictures are, one, of the Interurban Depot circa 1921 and the other of Mrs. R.G.K. Deering at Burlesonís circa 1923 linotype after the final edition of the long-running Burleson Dispatcher newspaper in 1985. The paper ran in the building in the first picture from roughly 1935-1985. The building has been remodeled and is home to the Burleson Heritage Foundationís Visitorís Center & Museum as seen in picture number three. The building is the site of Burlesonís first concrete floor, which is still there, and the first electric light bulb. The Burleson Heritage Foundation is restoring Interurban Express Car #330.

On the second Saturday of each October, Burleson holds Founderís Day, a large celebration of Burleson Heritage and Culture." - Robert Griffith, Burleson, Texas, December 06, 2005
