Long Description:
This depot served the rail line into and out of Elm City, North Carolina. When no longer in use, CSX donated the building to the city provided they relocate it off of their right-of-way. The city relocated the depot behind the Methodist Church but still with the rail line at the front of the depot. The building has been authentically restored and is now in use as a community center. The plaque at the front entrance reads:
