Seaboard Air Line Railway Depot, 1892, Colbert

Like many towns across Georgia, Colbert saved and restored its historic depot, which now serves as city hall. [One source dates the depot to 1892 and another, to 1907. I am unsure which is correct]. First incorporated as the Town of Five Forks in 1899, the community’s name was changed to Colbert in 1909, after early settler James Fletcher Colbert.

This Seaboard Coast Line/Louisville & Nashville caboose was acquired by the city circa 1976 and is located adjacent to the depot.
