Rose Garden & Historic MKT Train Depot, Lancaster — Lancaster's train depot was opened in December 1888 as a stop on the Dallas and Waco Railroad. In 1891, this railroad became part of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas (MKT) line, running from Dallas to the Gulf Coast of Texas. The Depot's original location on East Main Street was slightly north of its current location at Centre and Pecan.
The Rose Garden adjacent to the Depot was dedicated in loving memory of J. Cecil Edwards, former mayor of Lancaster, by his wife Geneva Edwards Anderson and daughter, Betty Edwards Woodward.

|"wonderful intimate setting", An Eventective User from Dallas|
|I had my wedding ceremony here in 2008, this is a lovely and quiet place for a wedding ceremony and reception. It feels quaint and charming but is actually very spacious and just 20 minutes from downtown Dallas. Excellent indoor/outdoor entertaining and event space, very reasonable rates, and friendly helpful people to deal with. Carol is great!|
