Built in 1908 by the Texas Traction Company. This station served passengers and freight customers of the company's north Texas Routes, The wood frame passenger depot and the attached brick freight/Electric Transformer section remained in use until 1948, When the rail system declined in favor of automobile travel. It is one of the few reminders of Plano's Early 20th Century Transportation History.

Ironically, almost fifty years later in 1996, Dallas instituted a light rail system as part of the DART (Dallas Area Rapid Tranisit) system. To date the system has grown considerably and well used by the citizens of Dallas and the surrounding communities. Plano's downtown station is about 150 meters behind this station.
