West Point Train Depot

Situated near the western edge of the Georgia state line with Alabama, the West Point Train Depot is a reminder of the railroad history that defines the historical significance of West Point, Georgia. In the late 1800s, it was necessary for all trains traveling between Montgomery and Atlanta to stop in West Point to transfer freight between train cars. Georgia and Alabama had different gauge (width) railroad tracks, thus establishing West Point as a bustling town full of industry, travelers and hospitality.

The Train Depot and caboose have been restored and renovated to provide visitors a reminder of the past and an opportunity to learn more about the impact the railroad had on the history of West Point.
