Built in 1884 for Georgia-Pacific Railway, now a Norfolk-Southern line, this charming rail depot was restored by the City of Leeds 100 years later.
32 coats of paint and six layers of floor were removed during the restoration. A stationmaster's cupola that had been removed while putting on a new roof was restored.
In 1999, the baggage room was renovated and turned into a public meeting hall. The depot is still undergoing restoration today.
