VLR Listing Date 03/18/2010

A rare survivor of the passenger train era in Virginia’s southwestern region, Dungannon Depot was constructed circa 1910 in Scott County on the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway line. After passenger trains stopped serving the area in 1955, the building stood vacant. In order to save, preserve, and reuse it, in 1978 the depot was relocated a quarter mile from its original site to the Town of Dungannon. There it has been carefully maintained, providing municipal office space. The depot’s architecture and craftsmanship surpasses many of the extant railroad stations along the C.C. & O., which ran from Kentucky to South Carolina.
