Southern Railway Depot, 1915, Toccoa

This colorful depot, restored in 2005, is an Amtrak stop on the Crescent line. It’s also home to the Toccoa-Stephens County Chamber of Commerce, the Currahee Military Museum, and the Stephens County Historical Society. In regards to its multiple uses, it’s one of the best depot restorations in Georgia.

Beyond the tracks, which were originally laid by the Atlanta & Richmond Air Line, is a view of the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. President Franklin D. Roosevelt visited the depot in 1936 and President George H. W. Bush was a visitor in 1992.
