    In 1881, the first story of this brick depot was built as a station for the Texas & Pacific Railway. Two years later, a second floor was added to the structure, and the new railroad town of Baird was chosen Callahan County seat. The Renaissance Revival depot, which features decorative brickwork, was used by the railroad until 1977. Its presence is a reminder of the town's importance as a shipping point for the T & P Railway for over 60 years. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark -1985.
