This is a piece of history. The structure is beautiful in design and the cooper roof is sweet. Much of Fort Payne's history is found inside this little gem and there is an old red caboose to tour.

A wonderful example of excellent architecture and craftsmanship from the early railroad days. The detail and preservation of this building rivals anything I have seen in the United States.

The most Beautiful Depot you'll ever see. I remember when I was young and the Depot stayed busy, loved watching the trains. The Stone Work is out of this world. You can feel the past surrounding you. It's a Gotta See
