This building was erected as a passenger station or the Blue Ridge Railroad. It bridges the railroad cut under North Main Street which was excavated by the Blue Ridge Railroad Company as part of a project to build a line over the mountains to Knoxville, Tennessee, where it would connect with other railroads to the mid-west. The excavation work was done by Drawford Keys with the help of slave labor beginning in 1854. The project was abandoned in 1869, and the railroad was completed only as far as Walhalla. The Blue Ridge Passenger Station of later years was closed when passenger service was discontinued about 1945.
