As you might have already noted – Slaton is a railroad time. During the hay day of train travel – a Scotsman name of Fred Harvey – set up a chain of Harvey Houses, which offered nice dining on long journeys. The Harvey Houses were all staffed by the famous Harvey Girls. Today, the Slaton Harvey House still serves travelers – now as an historic B&B. Really ought to think about a stay here if in the area. For a little overview of the Harvey House go here. If you’re wanting to inquire about the B & B go here. If just driving through – you might want to stop by as if they’re open, there are some Harvey House and railroad memorabilia.
