About Dickinson Historical Society
Over 20 years ago, the Dickinson Historical Society was founded as a 501(C)3 organization. It’s first project was an ambitious one — to restore both the Dickinson and the League City train depots. The restored GH&H depots now comprise the Historic Railroad Center in Dickinson. The past two decades, this center has been a recognizable symbol of Dickinson and an example of what can be accomplished when civic groups, private citizens, and local governments work together.
“The Dickinson Historical Society is a volunteer organization that is dedicated to the education and preservation of the history of Dickinson and the surrounding area.”
We strive to become a leader in preservation for Dickinson and the surrounding community for education.
