1. Concho, San Saba & Llano Valley Railroad Station Marker
Inscription.  Attracted by the area's livestock production, nearby shipping points, and the financial support of the town, the Concho, San Saba and Llano Valley Railroad began building a line to Sterling City in 1909. A boxcar served as the depot until this mission revival building was completed. Highway and pipeline construction caused a decline in rail traffic and the line closed in 1958. Only the depot remains as a reminder of the early rail service that helped develop the area.
Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1980
