The "Katy Depot"
San Antonio, Texas


Missouri, Kansas, Texas Railroad Depot
San Antonio, Texas Republic

This was perhaps the most beautiful railroad station ever built in the deep south. The "Katy Depot" was patterned after the many Spanish missions scattered throughout the southwest and particularly around the San Antonio area. There are more than five missions in San Antonio alone, including the Alamo. As you can see, the KATY depot could easily be mistaken for a church, or one of the many Spanish missions in the area which may have often happened.

The interior walls were covered with Moorish tile in a brilliant southwestern design. Photos of the interior are extremely rare but the search continues for at least one.

Sadly, this fantastic station is gone. Standing in its place now is a hotel.
