Built in 1900 by the newly formed Seaboard Airline Railroad, the Hamlet Station, in Hamlet N.C., was once the principal stop for refueling and crew exchanges between large northern cities and the deep south. Although it has been recently added to the National Historic Register, the terminal is slated for replacement and hopes are that the building will be saved and converted to a museum.
The Hamlet passenger station was built in 1990 for the Seaboard Airline Railroad and is the only Victorian Queen Anne passenger station in North Carolina. Because of its history and unique architecture, the depot is known nationally and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. To preserve the depot, the city of Hamlet and the North Carolina Department of Transportation relocated and renovated the station.
