A locomotive on the Nashville-Knoxville Railroad first steamed into Cookeville in 1890. The Tennessee Central bought the line in 1902 and built this depot with its distinctive pagoda design in 1909. Soon six trains daily brought visitors, shoppers, and salesmen to town and took natives to distant places. Also, freights loaded with lumber, hogs, corn, and tobacco rolled to faraway markets.

I Saw The Marker

Wonderful location in the "Old" part of town. City is doing a wonderful job of rejuvenating the area with shops and restaurants, all within walking distance of this and a few more Historical marker. This is an old Pagoda style train depot. The depot is open to the public (free) for tours including a model of the town around WW2 era.
