Lometa was an important point for shipments of wool and mohair on the Santa Fe. For this reason, and because of heavy traffic anticipated to be arriving from the San Saba branch line, the new depot built at Lometa in 1911 was one of the largest country depots on the Santa Fe system in Texas. At the beginning of the 21st Century several large wool and mohair warehouses remain along the tracks, and until the 1960s area buyers such as L. M. (“Mick”) Stephens shipped all of their clients’ wool and mohair to Boston on the Santa Fe.
Lometa feed store and wool and mohair company. After a little research, turns out it belongs to a friend of mine. Very cool!
