*********

With Houston' growth, Gulf Colorado and Santa Fe, in 1883, built a direct line, through the Pearland area, from Alvin to Houston. Their flourishing business began to decline with the coming of cars. Hay and cattle shipping held Gulf Colorado and Santa Fe together until they sold out to Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe in Galveston, Texas, August 1, 1965. All records were burned. In the early 1980s, concerned citizens along with the Pearland Chamber of Commerce moved the Depot next to City Hall, refurbished it and it became the home of the Pearland/Hobby Chamber of Commerce.
