Montezuma Depot

As part of our mission to bring you as much of the good of Southern culture as possible, we introduce our “Southern Snapshots” series. Some may be artfully composed beauty shots, others may be just quick grabs of interesting sights on the back roads of “God’s country.”

Here’s a snapshot of the old train depot in downtown Montezuma, Ga. This shot was literally one of those “drive-by shootings.” I snapped it — on the move — through the passenger side window. I don’t know any history about the depot other than it was built in 1890.

  1. I believe this is actually the depot in Marshallville, Georgia, just up the road from Montezuma. I especially think so because of the for sale sign in the window. The Marshallville Depot was recently sold and converted into a store. The Montezuma depot has been a local museum for years.
