The W&A (Western & Atlantic) Railroad Depot was constructed by the State of Georgia between 1848-1850 as part of the state-owned Western & Atlantic Railroad. This depot is one of Georgia's oldest. The Depot witnessed many important events during the Civil War; a speech by Confederate State's President Jefferson Davis in 1861; the Great Locomotive Chase of 1862; several Civil War skirmishes; and the first headquarters of General Sherman during his Atlanta Campaign.

For years the building was incorporated into a ConAgra feed mill (see 2003 photo below). Today it stands free but vacant and a bit worn. Fortunately the community plans to rehabilitate it once some other projects are completed and funding is in hand.
