Travel Tuesday – Historic Cullman Railroad Depot


More pictures from my adopted home town. While no one in my family would have come through Cullman County on the railroad, I can imagine that some one of them would have visited a rail road depot some where.

The Cullman Railroad Depot as it stands now was completed in 1913 by the Louisville and Nashville Railroad Company (L & N). This depot replaced the original depot in Cullman, when the tracks were laid below ground level. Passenger service stopped running to Cullman in 1968, and the depot was used by section crews, until 1990, when the depot was purchased by the City of Cullman and today it houses the United Way of Cullman County. In the lobby are vintage railroad related items on display and outside is a restored L & N caboose. The depot was added to National Register of Historic Places in 1976.

Happy Searching!
