The West Point Depot and Museum is the historic site for transfer of freight between Montgomery and Atlanta in the late 1800s. Because Georgia and Alabama had different gauge railroad tracks, it was necessary for all trains traveling between the two states to stop in West Point, located at the state line. Thus established the town with its ties to the railroad and a community renowned for its southern hospitality to travelers.
Today, this completely renovated and restored freight depot has resumed its stature at the juncture between two states. Providing a Visitor Center and entertainment facilities, the Depot is also the repository for West Point's rich history.
