Adairsville Rail Depot Age of Steam MuseumVisitor information, historical displays and more are at the town’s 1847 railroad depot.

Some fighting as Johnston made a brief stand near here May 17 then withdrew to the Cassville area. Andrews Raiders passed through two years earlier during the Great Locomotive Chase. The Chase is commemorated with an annual downtown festival the first weekend of October.

The Adairsville Rail Depot Age of Steam Museum is located in the restored Depot building on Public Square in historic downtown Adairsville, Georgia. The building had been practically abandoned for many years after the railroad stopped passenger, freight service here in the late 1960's.

Since then, it had been occasionally used as storage. This is what saved the depot from demolition.
Former Mayor of Adairsville Georgia, and local businessman, Bill Penfield, had used the depot as a place to store the carpet overflow from his business on Railroad Street. Learning that the depot had been slated for demolition by the railroad, Mr. Penfield and his wife, Pansy, began a campaign to save it.

Adairsville Rail Depot MuseumThey spent much time communicating with the railroad company and the City of Adairsville Georgia. Eventually, through their efforts, and the efforts of the City, and other concerned citizens, the depot was saved, a federal grant was obtained, and the building was beautifully restored. It now houses, not only the museum, but also the Adairsville Welcome Center (a division of the Cartersville/Bartow County Convention and Visitors Bureau).

Open Wednesday and Friday at 11am until 3pm, and Saturday at 11am until 4pm.
