Marker Text Styled by standard plans of the builder, the St. Louis, Brownsville and Mexico Railroad Company; erected in 1904 of locally made adobe brick, this structure is one of oldest in Kingsville. It has seen interesting events involving traffic during border troubles and world wars I and II. The Missouri pacific system, in control of this road since 1925, phased out passenger traffic in 1966, but maintains a dispatcher's office in the building. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1974
