Did you know...
In past years, Mineola was a railroad terminal for crews of the Texas & Pacific Railway, and two railroad hotels, Beckham (north) and the Carleton-Bailey (south, abandoned) were populated by train crews laying over between trips. Today Mineola is a burgeoning bed-and-breakfast spot, with a revitalized downtown area that houses a variety of restaurants, antique shops and other businesses. Just south and west of the depot, look for numerous horseshoe throwing pits - a competition from the past which is enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Mineola is also Amtrak's gateway to Canton, site of the region's largest flea market, First Monday Trade Days.
