The Norfolk and Western Railway built this 1902 facility, to replace an earlier freight depot. The current building has a two-story tower, which is its most distinguishing feature. The station was used as both a freight and passenger depot for most of the 1900's. The building is no longer used as a railway station - it is currently used for commercial purposes.
