Eventually the railroad in Welfare stopped running, in 1976 the post office closed, and in 1978 the general store closed.

Today you can find a restaurant, Welfare Wind Bar and Café, that is the converted post office. The general store also displays old artifacts. The Welfare Café is known for its delicious German cuisine. In 2005, The Old Goat Barn was built using wood from the original barn. This has now become a wedding venue.

For more information about the Welfare Café or wedding venue visit Welfare, Texas online at www.welfaretexas.com.
