Toccoa Depot

Toccoa's railroad depot in 2009

Toccoa's 1915 Southern Railway depot was rehabilitated in 2005 to house the Toccoa-Stephens County Chamber of Commerce and the Currahee Military Museum. Fortunately, it also continues to be a stop on Amtrak's Crescent.

A new overhanging and gabled roof with colorful brackets has transformed the building from a drab box to one of Georgia's most eye-catching depots.

A few blocks from the depot is an old humpback bridge over the tracks, one of a dwindling number of such structures in Georgia.

Toccoa is a city of 8,421 in northeastern Georgia. It is the county seat of Stephens County.
