About the Depot
The train depot was originally built in 1905 by the Wadley and Mt. Vernon Railroad. The Georgia and Florida Railroad made its presence in Douglas in 1907 and became a major employer for the area for the next 60 years. In the mid-1980s, the depot was closed for passenger transportation. In 1999, Georgia and Florida Railway employees and Friends of the Museum renovated the depot and re-opened it as Heritage Station Museum.
