Historic Train Depot
The Depot was constructed in 1908 by the Nashville, Chattanooga, and St. Louis Railroad and was originally used as a freight and passenger Depot, with two passenger waiting rooms added to the north end of the Depot in the 1920s. The City restored the building that is now used as a Welcome Center, centerpiece and stage for City sponsored special events and other activities throughout the year.
The Tunnel Amphitheatre at Depot Park provides seating for up to 60 attendees. This location is perfect for an array of special events including performances, weddings and small lectures. The Tunnel Amphitheatre does have limited electrical.
