Depot Historical Marker to be unveiled July 9

There will be an unveiling of one of Comanche’s few, remaining historical structures, the Comanche Frisco Depot, on Friday, July 9, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. at the Depot. Everyone is invited to attend.

After years of research, primarily by Margaret Dudley, member of the Comanche Main Street and Friends of Historic Comanche, and fund-raising by Friends, along with the generosity of citizens near and far, the very dilapidated 1909 depot has been restored.

The Depot, property of the City of Comanche, houses the Comanche Chamber of Commerce and serves as a place for meetings and other events. It also serves as a small museum of interesting artifacts of times gone by when the railroad and this depot made for an economic revival for Comanche County.

The program will include: John Dudley, president of Friends of Historic Comanche, will recognize special guests, the Comanche Boy Scouts will present the Colors, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. Fain McDaniel, chairman of the Comanche Historical Commission, along with Rose Taylor, chairperson of the Historical Markers, will unveil the marker. Margaret Dudley, Friends of Historic Comanche, will read the inscription.

Everyone is invited to celebrate the history of Comanche, Comanche County, Texas.
