This beautifully restored Victorian passenger and freight depot is the centerpiece of a nice public park and also houses a museum of local history. A similar depot survives down the line at Matthews.

R. M. Coleman operated a Chevrolet dealership in Mitchell in the 1920s and perhaps into the 1930s. This structure is likely older than that association.
I’m not sure what purpose this building served, but it was likely a grocery store.
This was last home to a grocery store and an Amoco service station.
