400 - 412 North River StreetThis building's history is one of the most fascinating in Depot Town. It was built with bricks brought from Mark Norris' Western Hotel which was previously destroyed by fire. The Thompson Building opened in 1861 just as the first shots of the Civil War were being fired. It was initially used as a barracks for the enlisted soldiers who carved their names in the rafters. The grounds of the depot served as their parade field.
