Hamlet Depot


Take your picture at the ‘Hub of the Seaboard’

During its heyday, the central North Carolinian city of Hamlet functioned as division headquarters for the Seaboard Airline Railroad and provided hospitality for passengers from New York to Florida. Now, Hamlet Depot, originally built in 1900 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is the most photographed train station in the eastern United States. Take your family to tour the Depot, see models in the Tornado room and walk through a full-size train and caboose. You might even be lucky enough to spot a train passing through on the tracks — the popular spot remains an active passenger depot. The location also hosts the popular Annual Seaboard Festival at the end of October, celebrating Hamlet’s railroad heritage. Continue your expedition by visiting landmarks along the self-guided Seaboard Trail to unravel the history of “The Little Town that Does.”
