Benjamin Knox Gallery
Located at 405 University Dr. East, College Station, TX 77840, the main building of the Benjamin Knox Gallery and Art Center is the rebuilt historic College Station train depot designed by Benjamin Knox. He designed the adjoining buildings in the same colorful train depot style combined with Texas vernacular architectural elements. Included on the facility grounds are mature oak trees, antique railroad memorabilia, and a 1905 antique caboose moved from Bergamot Station, Santa Monica, CA. Benjamin’s vision of bringing back the depot became a reality in 2001 after six years of intensive research, dedication, thorough design, and perseverance.
