Alapaha Depot

The Savannah, Florida & Western depot at Alapaha, built in the late 1800s, has survived longer than the town's railroad line, which was abandoned in 1985. The tracks, now long gone, were used by the Brunswick & Albany, the Brunswick & Western, the Savannah, Florida & Western, the Plant System, the Atlantic Coast Line, the Seaboard Coast Line, and the Seaboard System Railroad.

Used for a time as city hall, the depot now stands vacant.

The depot office and waiting rooms are at ground level, while the freight room was raised to facilitate freight loading and unloading. (2012 photo)
