NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Center for Regional Heritage Research at Stephen F. Austin State University will display "The Art of the Railroad" exhibit starting Tuesday, Jan. 21, at the Nacogdoches Railroad Depot.

The Industrial Revolution brought about the development of the railroad in the 19th century. This invention had a profound impact on society and the art world. This exhibit focuses on the interpretation of the railroad in different periods of art history.

The exhibit will continue through Feb. 28. Hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays. The Nacogdoches Railroad Depot is located at 101 Old Tyler Road in Nacogdoches. The event is free and open to the public.
