Beaumont opened unknown, closed unknown. There was a Harvey newstand presumably in the ATSF railway station. I have no other information. Any ideas out there?

Brownwood, TX c 1938 --Previous information was incomplete. Texas Department of Transportation has a contractor on site now.

"The upstairs is to be renovated for use as non-profit office space and displays. Most of the first floor has already been renovated and is used by the Chamber of Commerce as office and meeting space. The original large dining room is to be restored as completely as possible. A conservator is even coming in to repair where possible and restore the original painting and stenciling. " -- The TxDOT contract administrator, Nov 4, 2002.

Slaton, TX
The Slaton Harvey House was opened in 1912 and closed in the 1942. It continued to be used as a passenger station until the beginning of the Amtrak era, when passenger service to Slaton was discontinued.

In 1990, a not-for-profit foundation formed to fund restoration and reuse of this Harvey House. Restoration of the Harvey House began in Jan 2002, and the first floor work was underway during the Summer of 2003. For more information, please contact Slaton Railroad Heritage Association, 830 S. 21st, Slaton, TX 79364."
