Notes
Survey number HABS AL-971
Significance: This finely-detailed station marks the furthermost extension of the L. & N. Birmingham Mineral Railroad which opened Tuscaloosa County coal fields to economic development. / This Beaux Arts style depot built of yellow brick with limestone detailing, copper cornice and entrance awnings, and red tile roof now serves as a popular restaurant. Interior spaces are well preserved as is the bed of the abandoned L. & N. Railway which approaches the depot from the northeast, passing through the University of Alabama campus and residential areas. Adaptive reuse as popular restaurant and party spot.
