The Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Depot was built in 1907. The brick structure was designed to complement nearby Lancaster Park with its beautiful gardens, mineral electro-chalybeate wells, baseball park and fairgrounds. The City of Jackson has restored the Depot into a museum -- a lasting tribute to the impact of the railroads on the growth of Jackson and Madison County. Explore photographs, artifacts and related memorabilia associated with the railroad and local history. Also located on the grounds of the museum are an Amtrak dining car and two cabooses. An elaborate working scale model, built by the Jackson Model Railroad Club, also depicts Jackson's rich railroad history.
