Moody Depot Moves Downtown


Clay Coppedge reported on the depot’s move in the Temple Daily Telegram.

How do you move a 1907 railroad depot from one part of town to another one? Very carefully. And slowly.

The old Moody Depot, a long time feature of the Railroad and Pioneer Museum at the corner of Avenue H and 31st Street, was taken from there to its new location next to the downtown Santa Fe Depot Thursday morning.

Moody Depot Being Moved

A&D House Moving from Georgetown, Texas moved the depot in two sections, each 150 feet long, 30 feet wide and 23 feet tall. The move involved about 50 people and took around four hours.

Traffic was stopped at various points on Adams and Central avenues, and on 31st Street in the process.
