Marker Text Built by local stonemason James C. Lammers (1874-1942), this depot was completed in 1911, two years after the first train arrived in Bronte. Built of locally quarried materials, the depot features stone lintels and window sills and a red tile roof. Originally owned by the Kansas City, Mexico, and Orient Railway, the Bronte depot was sold in 1928 to the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway Company, which discontinued operations here in 1967.
