This Historic Kentucky Train Depot Is Now A Beautiful New Restaurant Right Along The Tracks
As is the fate of many historic buildings, there are properties in Kentucky that have unfortunately fallen into disrepair, with their former lives all but forgotten. Thankfully, some of these structures have been saved and preserved, continuing on with a new purpose and vision for the future. In the town of Paris, a local family has spent the past year restoring a historic train depot and transforming it into a lovely restaurant. This former Kentucky depot is now Trackside at the Depot, a beautiful dining destination right on the tracks, and you’ll want to check it out.
