WINNSBORO TRAIN DEPOT 

Years ago, the Hospitality / Visitor's Center was a log cabin type building on the Depot lot, at the southeast corner of Main and Broadway.  The Depot was eventually renovated and restored, largely with funding from Winnsboro Economic Development Corporation, and a parking lot was upgraded.  For a time, The Depot served as a museum.  In the past it has also housed the Small Business Development Center and the WEDC, and a facility room available for rent to the public.  

The Winnsboro Depot building is now empty; future has yet to be revealed by the city, but good things should be in store for the property and community!
