Long Description:

County of site: Carroll County
Location of site: Bradley St. & Lee St., Carrollton

"The locally-designated historic district includes parcels of land directly north of the Norfolk Southern Railroad. This particular area of the district includes the former Carrollton Train Depot, a self supporting lattice telecommunications tower erected in 1963, non-historic trailers housing Norfolk Southern offices, and historic railroad spurs leading from the north side of the main line, north of the depot. Directly east of the depot fronting Bradley Street, is a large parking lot, though excluded from the locally-designated district.

"Constructed in 1888, the Carrollton Train Depot is located at 315 Bradley Street (GNAHRGIS 250617). Recently restored, the brick depot contains a ticketing booth and grand hall, the latter currently used as an event space. The railroad, and associated depot, played a pivotal role in the development and prosperity of Carrollton’s textile industry from the late-19th century to mid-20th century. The depot does not embody characteristics of a defined architectural style" ~ Historical Resources Survey of Carrollton, pages 25 & 52
