Historical Marker Text
Concho, San Saba & Llano Valley Railroad Station

Attracted by the area's livestock production, nearby shipping points, and the financial support of the town, the Concho, San Saba and Llano Valley Railroad began building a line to Sterling City in 1909. A boxcar served as the depot until this mission revival building was completed. Highway and pipeline construction caused a decline in rail traffic and the line closed in 1958. Only the depot remains as a reminder of the early rail service that helped develop the area.
