Missouri certainly boasts a colorful history – literally. Nothing highlights that colorful past better than the Cotton Belt Freight Depot in Missouri. The once-bustling freight depot had long sat abandoned against the St. Louis landscape. However, today it draws curiousity-seekers with its bright facade, fascinating history, and historical status.
