The 1894 Cotton Belt Railroad Depot is a real gem which has been carefully restored pursuant to National Register standards with original colors and decor. The central office is furnished with antiques suitable to an office at the turn of the last century, working telegraphy, and railroading exhibits. A model train exhibit showcases a stylized mid-century Mount Vernon. The large freight room houses an 1899 Studebaker covered wagon in excellent condition. There is also a small 1880 log cabin moved onto the property, a syrup press and mill, period mule-drawn farm machinery, and a working blacksmith shop.
