Depot has been demolished to make way for realignment of the railroad tracks through downtown Kinston.
Demolition was handled by Charles Hughes Construction of La Grange, NC, and was begun in March, 2009.
Various materials were removed from the century-old building and current plans are to use those materials to reassemble a replica of the depot. The salvaged materials include exterior and interior bricks, roof trusses, wood flooring, and the scales used to weigh freight.
