Byron Depot

The 1870 Central of Georgia Railway depot in Byron now houses exhibits on the railroad and local history.

The town, named for the poet Lord Byron, got its start when the Southwestern Railroad was built through here before the Civil War.

The rail line through town is still active, carrying trains of Norfolk Southern.

A passenger could leave Byron and be in downtown Macon in thirty minutes.
