Toccoa Train Depot and Platform

Toccoa - Stephens County

The Historic Toccoa Train Depot, constructed in 1915, is now home to the Chamber of Commerce, Welcome Center, Currahee Military Museum, Stephens County Historical Society, and an active Amtrak Station. In 2005, the City of Toccoa revitalized the exterior of the Historic Train Depot, however, the passenger platform remained in disrepair. The concrete was cracked and below acceptable for ADA standards. In 2020, the City of Toccoa was able to secure an agreement with Amtrak to renovate the platform with multiple upgrades: a fully-ADA accessible platform, twenty historically inspired lights, and new signage for public interpretation. The fully revitalized Toccoa Train Depot and Platform have become a focal point for community locals and visitors alike.
