Southern Railway Passenger Station
— South Carolina National Heritage Corridor —The original Westminster Freight Depot was built in 1885. The railroad contributed to rapid growth and development in the Westminster area. Following incorporation and continued growth, in 1911 the passenger depot was constructed. However, as railroad passenger travel declined throughout America, Westminster's rail services were cut short. By 1970 all passenger service was discontinued.
