19 Railroad Station

19 Railroad Station

Bill M.
The "Stone Mountain Scenic Railroad" departs from a scale replica of Union Station, Atlanta's antebellum train depot during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Inside the station are a number of small shops. The original was constructed in 1853 and stood in the block now bounded by Central Avenue, Wall Street, Pryor Street, and Alabama Street (next to today's Underground Atlanta). Designed by civil engineer E. A. Vincent, it was initially known as the "passenger depot" and later came to be better known as the "car shed." This building served these railroads: Western & Atlantic; Georgia; Macon & Western; and Atlanta & West Point. It was the hub of a southern rail system that extended from Atlanta to Memphis, Mobile, Charleston, Savannah, Richmond, Alexandria, and Louisville. I remember as a child visiting the station just before it was torn down. #33484089N_84_84362W #Crossroads_Theme_Park #Stone_Mountain_Memorial_Park
