Today the local railroad station is vanishing from the rural American scene almost as fast as the vanishing passenger train; but the Depot had its day. In the late nineteen century and the early twentieth century, the Depot was a source of community pride, local news and the promise of adventure. Yes, the sights and sounds of the "Expresses", the "Limiteds", the "Specials", and the "Flyers" was exciting, indeed.
Clarksville Station traces her history from this glorious era. Built at the turn of the century by the now defunct Atlantic and Danville railroad, this classic Victorian Depot served both south central Virginia and north central North Carolina as a main passenger and freight station until her closing on June 29, 1973. Dismantled and moved approximately forty-five miles from her original location, Clarksville Station has been reconstructed to preserve a unique symbol of America's past.
Serving Person County and surrounding areas since 1975 as a staple full service restaurant, Clarksville Station now offers a full bar. It is definitely a local favorite!
