Bridgeport, AL Depot

Bridgeport, AL Depot full view

Built in 1917, this is the NCStL depot in the important railroad town of Bridgeport soon before trains cross the Tennessee River. The Sequatchie Valley Railroad also came through here. Today it is CSX along the tracks with some Norfolk Southern and Union Pacific coming through.

The architecture here is an unusual design for this part of the country, a Spanish Mission style that you would more likely see in St. Augustine or San Antonio.

Today, the depot is a museum operated by the Bridgepoort Area Historic Association (BAHA).
