Georgia Railroad Depot, 1840s, Maxeys

The old Georgia Railroad line that ran through Maxeys in its busier days was removed in the 1980s, but the depot remains the most tangible evidence of those times. Formally abandoned by Seaboard in 1984, the depot was once an integral part of the Georgia Railroad’s 40-mile branch that ran from Union Point to Athens. I haven’t located a date for the depot.

    I remember hearing the train that ran right next to my grandmother’s house in Maxeys when I would stay with her in the 50s and early 60s.
