Brazos River Channel and Dock CompanyInv# SB5020
$1,000 6% Gold Bond printed by American Bank Note Company NY. 23 coupons remain at the right of the bond. In 1840, work began on a railroad from Harrisburg to the Brazos River that was later chartered as the Harrisburg Rail Road and Trading Company. Although this company subsequently failed, and its charter lapsed, this was the first attempt to build a railroad over a route that later became a part of the Southern Pacific.
