Save The Depot
Our purpose is to restore the 1910 Southern Pacific railroad depot at the gateway of the Orange historic district and transform it into a museum for all to enjoy. Specifically, the overall goals of our program are:
To preserve the depot for the public benefit of the citizens of Orange by utilizing it as a museum, a gift shop and special events space. The grounds may be used for special events.
To promote community involvement in the process of funding the costs of restoration and operations.
To use the restoration of the depot to help revitalize downtown Orange by promoting tourism as the “Gateway to the Historic District.
For an exciting look at the Depot history, view this excellent short documentary produced by Trevier Gonzalez & Jonathan Tippett, Lamar University students at LUTV in Beaumont.
Thanks to Jim Cash of Jimi Jam Productions for all of the videos taken along the way.
