Restore the Depot

The Citizens Advisory Committee to “Restore the Pearland Depot” in conjunction with the Pearland Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Pearland Historical Society are embracing this project to preserve and restore the historic Depot.  The goal is to transform the depot into a museum with interactive curation and exhibits about the history of Pearland and the railroad.  Ultimately, the restored Depot will provide educational opportunities, community interaction, historic preservation and the creation of an attraction for visitors and residents.

Help Us Restore the Depot

This Railroad Depot has been sitting vacant since the hurricane of 2008 and is in need of restoration and preservation as one of the City’s oldest historic sites. Help us restore the Pearland Depot by donating to personalize your very own brick or bench. The donations will be used to restore and preserve the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroad Depot on Liberty Drive in Pearland.

Mission Statement

The mission is the restoration of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroad Depot and to provide educational and historical exhibits plus programming to preserve the history and culture of Pearland.

Proposed Concept for Pearland Railroad Depot

The proposed site plan concept for the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe Railroad Depot consists of the restoration and creation of a full service museum and event center, which includes restoring the interior and exterior of the Depot to its original look, renovate the caboose exterior and create an outdoor plaza area, build an event space for groups, meetings and events, be ADA compliant with restrooms and ramps, and tie in the historical style and finishes. Total estimated project renovation is $900,000.
