The Fort Worth and Denver
South Plains Railway Depot

The Fort Worth and Denver South Plains Railway Depot, 1801 Crickets Ave., was built in the Spanish Renaissance Revival style in 1928 for $45,889. Architect Wyatt C. Hedrick of Fort Worth also designed Texas Tech’s administration building.

Completion of the railway to Lubbock in 1928 provided the city, which then had a population of 20,000, with a second major rail connection and an expanded trade area.

The depot was abandoned in 1953, then was adapted for a restaurant in 1976. It now houses the Buddy Holly Center.
