The Historic Train Depot





Originally constructed as a freight and passenger depot for the Atlanta & West Point Railroad in the 1850s, the Historic Train Depot in Georgia was the site of an encounter between Federal and Confederate forces in July 1864. When your guests arrive to your unique wedding, they will be delighted by the building’s location just two blocks from the historic center of town, the rustic charm and the convenience of attending an event there. The brick walls complement most all decorations, which add your special touch to the backdrop. The rustic decor, exposed brick, boarding platform and green space all come together to create a unique venue for your next special occasion. This historic structure is large enough to comfortably hold up to 150 of your family and friends for a sit down meal with still room for a DJ/Band and dance floor. Walk down the aisle to your future wife or husband while a musician plays live if you wish. The indoor reception room is rich with history, vintage and has a barn- wedding feel.
