Description

Old Florida Georgia and Alabama Railroad Depot Richland GA

The depot, built in the late 1800s, was vacated by CSX Transportation in the 1980s, but then was operated by Georgia Southwestern Railroad. It has been closed more than a decade. It is owned by the Georgia Department of Transportation, which leases the building to the town of Richland for $1 a year.

The historic Richland Depot, which once served as a hub for railway traffic moving north, south, east and west through southwest Georgia, has undergone extensive renovation and l opened as a Railroad Museum, Richland City Hall and a Welcome Center. The restoration work was designed by Bruce Jennings, a Dalton architect, who specializes in historic restoration.
