Old Depot

Description

Old Depot, Branford, Fl.

This is the old depot and railway station in Branford Florida. When the structure was in its original location on the banks of the Suwannee River, the town was called Rowland’s Bluff, and the depot served both the railroad and the steamboats plying their trade on the river.

The Seaboard Coast Line eventually took control of the railroad right of way and in 1982 they sold the depot to the Branford Shrine Club. The Shriners moved the building to its present site for use as a club house and community center.
