Corner of Kentucky St. and Virginia St.

History can be about objects or it can just be about a point in space. Stand next to the kiosk and look north up Kentucky Street. You are standing at about the midpoint between the two rails of the Interurban Rail which ran from Sherman to Waco. The Interurban started service in 1908 and stopped in 1948. The piece of rail that is part of the kiosk is original rail from the line. The bricks are from Thurber and were used to pave the Square in 1908.
