    Recently I traveled to Lepanto. There is a historical museum there with no photos of the depot. The rails have been removed along with the depot. Cotton and the Frisco were important parts of this town. I remember playing at the depot as a child. Unfortunately I cannot print a picture from my mind to give the museum.
    My grandfather was the agent. I remember how grateful he was for his employment.
    Photos,postcards? Thanks PS. This Depot was also "Railway Express"

    Interesting. I used to sign the same way. His middle name was different than mine but never the less a C initial.

    Marion, I couldn't help but notice your Great-Grandmother's maiden name of Ballew. My wife has relatives in her dad's family whose surname was Ballew.

    Note he signed it on Dec 22 1936 but in all probability he was hired at an earlier date. When the RR Retirement Act (& I think Social Security Act) became law the employees filled out this card.

    I will bet that he was employed in the teens

    The town changed from a nice little town to nearly a forgotten one. I could find no history of the depot nor the railway. Still looking for historical photographs

    Not an artist.. but, this is to the basic shape of the station. Is there anyone that has pictures of stations with this shape?

    Here is a dimensioned drawing of the Lepanto Depot from August, 1919.

    Not being a railroad guy I cannot speak to the term Sanborn map. However what I see does not represent the Lepanto depot. I understand that Sanborn maps are supposed to be representative of town layouts.
