Fort Payne, AL Depot

Fort Payne, AL Depot

The Passenger train station in Fort Payne was built by Southern Railroad in 1891. Having the appearance of a fortress, the exterior, which was renovated in 1986, is of pink sandstone. A new roof was installed not too many years ago, topping the Richardsonian Romanesque style. Passenger service lasted until the early 60's. Today the building is a museum and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
