Iron City Depot

Decades ago Iron City's Atlantic Coast Line depot was moved to the east edge of town alongside US 84. For a time it housed a feed store, and later a business named The Peach Depot. The photo above shows it as it appeared on a bright sunny day in April of 2011.

In 1975 photographer Tom Solomon recorded the depot during its feed store period. The building had been repainted red. (Tom Solomon Photographs, Dothan Landmarks Foundation, Inc. Records, RG030. Archives of Wiregrass History and Culture, Troy University Dothan Campus, Dothan, AL.)

Solomon also photographed the building in 1963 when it served its original function beside the tracks. (Tom Solomon Photographs, Dothan Landmarks Foundation, Inc. Records, RG030. Archives of Wiregrass History and Culture, Troy University Dothan Campus, Dothan, AL.)

This Solomon image, taken on the same day in 1963, shows the passenger end of the depot. (Tom Solomon Photographs, Dothan Landmarks Foundation, Inc. Records, RG030. Archives of Wiregrass History and Culture, Troy University Dothan Campus, Dothan, AL.)

Note: These Solomon photos have been cropped to better fit this web page. To see the uncropped larger images that show more of the area surrounding the building, see the Tom Solomon Photographs.
