THE HISTORY OF THE DEPOT
(NOW LA MODERNA FIELD)
Once it became clear that what is now known as the Chisholm Trail Parkway toll road was actually going to become a reality, investors started looking to Cleburne and the tollway area for development opportunities. The city invested in a retail study to assist in retail recruitment.
In 2013 and 2014, Cleburne Mayor Scott Cain had discussions concerning a potential development project for the Chisholm Trail Parkway and US Hwy 67 area. Through those discussions, the Mayor learned more about development possibilities for the area and ideas about handling traffic flows into and out of an entertainment development.
