Visitors Center

Originally built as the Southern Freight Depot in 1911, this depot was restored by the city in 2009 and today houses the Dalton Visitor's Center and Gift Shop. The Freight Depot is a train fan's delight with a covered platform, and a live audio feed from train radios. Watch the dual tracks of the CSX and Norfolk Southern Railroads pass the "Dalton Diamond," at a 45 degree crossing directly in front of the viewing platform. Adjacent to the Freight Depot is the 1949 Southern "Crescent City" Pullman car. The Freight Depot is also home to the Bandy Heritage Center Museum that houses a rotating collection of historical items.
