Tallulah Falls Railway Depot, Circa 1903, Demorest

This historic depot has been used as a business for many years. I hope the City of Demorest or Piedmont College will consider restoring it if that is an option. It was built by master local carpenter George H. Cason, who also built the Methodist Episcopal Church South (Demorest Women’s Club).

Southern Railway Depot, 1912, Lavonia

A restoration in the 1970s essentially “modernized” the interior of the Lavnoia Depot, dropping ceilings and obscuring important structural details. An historically accurate second restoration, completed in 2012, returned the depot to its rightful place as the anchor of the historic downtown. It now houses a welcome center and offices.

Southern Railway Depot, 1904, Royston

The Elberton Air-Line Railroad first built a line through Royston in the late 1870s. After a series of mergers the line became property of the Southern Railway, who built this depot in 1904. The city now owns and rents the depot for public use.

Georgia Railroad Depot, Circa 1881, Sparta

The Georgia Railroad depot at Sparta has been in derelict condition for many years, but the roof has recently been replaced and I believe further renovations are on the drawing board.

It is very similar to other depots of the Georgia Railroad.
