East Texas City
Texas Main Street City
Top 10 Peach Producing Counties
Experience rural life, railroad heritage, and one man’s fanciful idea of a flying machine in this Texas Main Street city. The Northeast Texas Rural Heritage Center offers exhibits in its Depot Museum, a former Cotton Belt Railroad Depot. It showcases a working telegraph office, history of the poultry industry, and the story of the Center Point Training School, established after the Civil War to educate African American children from Texas and other states. The site also houses a full-sized replica of the Ezekiel Airship, a curious flying machine inspired by a biblical verse and built before the Wright Brothers’ historic flight. The original airship was destroyed in a train accident. At the nearby Farmstead Museum, history comes alive in a blacksmith shop, smokehouse, general store, and a fully restored 100-year-old farmhouse.
