Chartered in 1858 to build a rail from Powderhorn Bayou to Clark Station, meeting with the San Antonio & Mexican Gulf Railroad. Work was delayed by the Civil War when financing was scarce and CSA troops burned ties and destroyed rail to keep it from the Yankees. Work resumed in 1869. Woodward (treasurer, IRR) and Hoyt (subscriber) were both prominent in the area. $60.
