More than fifty years ago, Mell Pruitt, currently a retired school teacher in Bryan began to collect and search out information on African Americans in the Brazos Valley. The small gathering of articles and photographs grew into an extensive collection about the history of African Americans in the Brazos Valley and beyond. In 1999 the African American National Heritage Society (AANHS) was founded in an effort to raise funds for the future construction of a museum to house the collection.

We are working hard to have the Depot open to the public on Saturdays in 2008. We have started a complete inventory. We have quite a few items in the Museum and are now working on getting them labeled and improve upon our displays. It's really a constant struggle to maintain our membership rolls and encourage our members to continue volunteering. This Depot was a vital part of our community's heritage and we must continue to preserve and protect its future.
