Notes
Survey number HABS MS-169
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-22; N926).
Significance: In 1928 the St. Louis and San Francisco (Frisco) Railway Company completed a new rail line along the Tombigbee River to connect the recently acquired track of the Muscle Shoals, Birmingham and Pensacola Railway with the extensive network of Frisco track in the Mississippi Valley and the lower Plains States. The Aberdeen Station, built in 1929-30, was located in the late nineteenth century hamlet of East Aberdeen, a community with several stores and a cluster of houses, near a road bridge across the Tombigbee-River. The station was specially designed in an austere domestic style, unlike the more common Mission Revival style Frisco stations.
