These 10 Charming Train Depots In Mississippi Will Transport You To The Past

Just like many other states, the railroad played a huge part in Mississippi’s history. The first rails arrived in the state in 1835, and before long, Mississippi was home to several major railroads, including Illinois Central and Gulf, Mobile & Ohio. Many of these railroads are now defunct, but the state’s rich history lives on through historic depots. Some depots are still standing, some have been converted to museums, and others remain only in photographs – no matter the circumstance, these charming Mississippi train depots will transport you back to a much simpler time.

It’s always so interesting to look at photos from the past and see how much the state has changed. What other historic train depots can be added to this list?
