These records consist of correspondence, annual reports, valuation reports, financial statements, and stockholders meeting minutes, dating 1836-1950, undated (bulk [ca. 1880]-[ca. 1910]) of Texas railroad companies. The records were removed from the records of the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts office, the Texas Secretary of State, and the Texas Governor's Office, and placed together to create this artificial collection probably by the staff of the Texas State Archives in the 1970s. Many of the materials pre-date the existence of the Railroad Commission of Texas, which was created in 1891.
