MORE DETAILS:

In 1993, committee chairman Judge Larry Wagenbach convinced the Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Railway Company to donate 1.47 acres of land on the west side of 3rd Street and north of Avenue F in downtown Rosenberg to the Rosenberg Railroad Museum. In July of that year, the railroad museum acquired its first artifacts from an auction at the George Ranch - the largest being the 1879 business car "Quebec".

In November, 1993, the museum held its first fundraiser at the former Rosenberg State Bank Building on the corner of Avenue G and 2nd Street in downtown Rosenberg. The Harvey House themed event was attended by actor James Drury, best known as "The Virginian".

In the summer of 1994, the museum prepared a foundation for the rail car and the Quebec arrived at the site in the summer of 1995, ready for restoration to begin.


None of Rosenberg's original railroad structures had survived, except for Tower 17, and that structure was still in service, so there was a need to construct a building that would house the exhibits. By the end of 1998, construction began on the reproduction of the Rosenberg Santa Fe depot for use as a museum gallery. The museum building was completed in 2002, and on June 6-8 of that year, a Grand Opening was held, attracting thousands of people from across Fort Bend County.

Today, the Rosenberg Railroad Museum continues to grow in fulfillment of its mission to present the railroad heritage of Fort Bend County. We could not have come this far without the dedication of many members, volunteers, and sponsors throughout the years, and the continued support of our membership and the public at large.
