Magnolia TX history
Early in the 1900's Magnolia was known as "Mink". The town was tiny town and the primary industry was sawmills. The name of the town was changed in the mid 1900's. from Mink to Magnolia. Sawmills need railroads so it was natural that the railroad should become an integral part of the community. Those days are long gone but the Magnolia Depot still stands as a tribute to that era. The Depot, as a result of the efforts of many community volunteers has been placed in its original location. The old depot which was once a hub of activity saw passenger and freight cars, filled with people, lumber, groceries, supplies, daily newspapers and just about any other necessity of the day rolled in and out. The depot now rests beside the tracks, with many trains passing through but never stopping for cargo or passengers.
