The Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railroad Depot popularly known as Katy Station was built in downtown Columbia, Missouri in 1909 by the Missouri–Kansas–Texas Railroad. The station was one of two train stations serving Columbia in the 20th century, the other being the Wabash Railroad Station and Freight House constructed the same year.[2] The building is the terminus of the M.K.T. Trail, a rails-to-trails project that was built on the former spur of the railroad. The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[3] Having house a popular local restaurant named "Katy Station" after the building, it now houses a bar name "Shilo's."[4]
