When the Central Virginia Railroad was built in 1854, it changed Staunton from a rural village into a booming center of commerce. By the turn of the century, the warehouses that had grown up around the train depot supplied everything from fresh produce to wagons and harnesses. The Wharf Historic District was listed in the National Register in 1972.
