The Scottsboro Depot
The Scottsboro Freight Depot is one of three remaining pre-Civil War depots in Alabama.
Built by the Memphis and Charleston Railroad Company in 1861, it saw active service as a working depot for 132 years. On January 8, 1865, Union troops defended the building against siege by Confederate infantry and artillery. Damage from the skirmish is still visible today.
We are open Fridays, 10 am to 2 pm.
