Southern Railway Depot Stained Glass Ornament


A nod to Greenville's railroad history



The Southern Railway Depot was a popular hub for passengers traveling through Greenville by train from 1905 to 1988. Perhaps the most newsworthy day in its history was April 13, 1945 when the flag-draped casket of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and its 11-car procession stopped in the station for about 30 minutes to change engines. When the maintenance of the station became too great, it was razed and replaced.
