Architecture, Historic Site, Main Street City Texas, Mineola, Old Downtown, Upper East Texas

Mineola, which site is located at the center of East Texas timber belt, is a town that sprung up in 1873 with the construction of the southern transcontinental railroad. The train station in Mineola today is a designated daily stop, served by the national railroad passenger system’s Amtrak Texas Eagle which connects Chicago (Illinois), St. Louis (Missouri), and Los Angeles (California). Mineola is a Texas and National Main Street City. Its historic downtown has been revitalized and holds many attractive community events all year round. An acoustic music jam is held every third Saturday by the railroad, along the streets and in the alleys downtown.
