Alabama - Foley Depot Museum
Foley, AL - Located in the old L & N Railroad Depot is Foley's Museum Archives. The first depot was built in 1905 when Mr. John B. Foley of Chicago used some of his own money to bring the railroad to the southern part of Baldwin County. This first depot burned to the ground, and a second station took its place in 1908. The railroad line was a spur from Bay Minette and ended approximately a mile south of Foley. At that end, there was a wye when the train could turn around.

The first railroad depot was built on site in 1905 when the Bay Minette-Fort Morgan Railway was formed. Mr. John B. Foley, for whom the town is named, used some of his own money to extend the rail line to Foley from Bay Minette. When the extension was finished in 1907 it became the L & N Railroad. A fire destroyed the first station so a second depot was built in 1909. This is the building that stands today. Come and visit the historic depot to see photos, tools and memorabilia documenting Foley's history and the important part the railroad played in developing this area.

Alabama - Fort Payne Depot Museum
Fort Payne, AL - Fort Payne Depot Museum, presented by Landmarks of Dekalb County. Located in Northeast Alabama, our musuem, which is actually a train depot circa late 1800s, contains much more than railroad historical artifacts. Thanks to many donations from estates and businesses, we have artifacts from every war since the Civil War, items from the formation of our city, thousands of Indian artifacts (like arrowheads, baskets, and sculptures), and much more. Listed with the National Register of Historic Places, we are a popular tourist spot just minutes from heavily-visited Mentone and not much farther from cities like Birmingham, Chattanooga, and Atlanta

Arkansas - Central Delta Depot Museum
Brinkley, AR - The Central Delta Depot Museum in Brinkley (Monroe County) is an initiative of the Central Delta Historical Society, which was organized in the 1990s to preserve the history and heritage of the central Delta area. The museum's scope covers all of Monroe and parts of Woodruff, St. Francis, Prairie, Lee, Phillips, and Arkansas counties.

In February 2001, Union Pacific deeded the station to the city of Brinkley, which later gave a long-term lease for it to the Central Delta Historical Society. The groundbreaking ceremony for the restoration of the depot was held May 4, 2001. Welch Construction Company of Benton (Saline County) had the general contract, and work was completed in 2003. The museum opened in May of that year.

The Central Delta Depot Museum is a museum of general history, with an emphasis on the stories of the Rock Island and Cotton Belt rail lines that crossed at Brinkley. The museum gets some support from the city of Brinkley but otherwise depends on admission charges, donations, fundraisers, and grants to finance its operation.

On the museum grounds is the approximately 100-year-old frame depot that at one time was located at Monroe (Monroe County) on the Missouri Pacific rail line that connected Brinkley to Helena (Phillips County). Still another rail line, the White and Black River Railroad (owned in later years by Rock Island), provided service from Brinkley to Jacksonport (Jackson County).

Arkansas - Mammoth Spring Frisco Depot Museum
Mammoth Spring AR - Mammoth Spring, Arkansas's largest spring, flows nine million gallons of water hourly. Forming a scenic 10-acre lake, it then flows south as the Spring River, a popular trout and float stream.

Near the spring, a beautifully-restored 1886 Frisco depot houses a collection of railroad memorabilia. The baggage room displays local history exhibits, and just outside is a Frisco caboose. The 1886 Frisco Depot will take you back in time to a bustling 1800s train depot. The Mammoth Spring Depot is one of only a few depots in the nation that have been restored as museums dedicated to interpreting their roles as train depots
