Dave's Depots, NC&STL Depot, Kennesaw, Georgia

This edition of Dave's Depots takes us down south to the town of Kennesaw, Georgia. Kennesaw is located north of Atlanta, along the tracks of the state-owned Western & Atlantic Railroad. The line was leased to the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis railroad in the 1890s. The NC&StL was owned by the L&N, and operation of the line came under L&N control after the 1957 merger of the two roads. The L&N won a new lease of the line in the 1960s.

The depot is a standard NC&StL style depot, and is in very good shape. It sits across the street from the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History, home of the General, which was discussed in an earlier post.
