Come enjoy a nostalgic journey into the Golden Age of Railroading-that wondrous era that ended in the 1920's when the great Iron Horse was "King of the Road" and the Depot was the "Hub" of every town and hamlet.
Today the local railroad station is vanishing from the rural American scene almost as fast as the vanishing passenger train;but the Depot had its day. In the late nineteen century and the early twentieth century, the Depot was a source of community pride, local news and the promise of adventure. Yes, the sights and sounds of the "Expresses", the "Limiteds", the "Specials", and the "Flyers" was exciting, indeed.
Clarksville, VA., 1974
(The original Clarksville Station shortly before it was moved to Roxboro, NC)
Clarksville Station traces her history from this glorious era. Built at the turn of the century by the now defunct Atlantic and Danville railroad, this classic Victorian Depot served both south central Virginia and north central North Carolina as a main passenger and freight station until her closing on June 29, 1973. Dismantled and moved approximately forty-five miles from her original location, Clarksville Station has been reconstructed to preserve a unique symbol of America's past.
We hope you enjoy your stay with us at Clarksville Station and remember-The road to a friend's house is never long.
