The Boones Mill Depot, built in the early 1900s, was once operated by the former Norfolk & Western Railway as a passenger and freight station. The depot represents the vital role the railroad played in the economic history of Boones Mill, serving as the primary shipping point for all agricultural goods. The depot has been identified as a contributing structure to the Boones Mill Historic District, which has been determined eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
In 2011, Norfolk Southern (successor to N&W) announced their plans to demolish the building due to liability concerns. It was listed on both the RVPF’s and Preservation Virginia’s Endangered Sites list for 2012. RVPF was very excited to help restore this wonderful community asset. Find our more here
