Brownwood: Santa Fe Depot and Harvey House

The Santa Fe Depot and Harvey House is a very large, beautifully restored building, containing the Brownwood Visitors Center and the Brownwood Store. The store is a great place to shop for Texas-themed gifts, books, toys, clothing, specialty jewelry, coffees, sauces, and candy, and the Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center has an extensive collection of tourist information. Upstairs you can tour the 3-room Gordon Wood Hall of Champions, dedicated to renowned Texas high school coach Gordon Wood. Across the hall is a sample dorm room of the famous Harvey Girls. Other rooms on the floor were guest rooms for overnight railroad guests, now occupied by the Brownwood Economic Development Council offices. The large Depot building next door is now used for special events, banquets, and weddings. Open Mon-Friday. A must stop for visitors to Brownwood.
