Significance: The Norfolk & Western Railway Petersburg Freight Depot is a little-altered example of an early twentieth-century railroad freight office and depot. The building is one of several railroad buildings that survive from a much larger complex and is a contributing resource in the Old Town Petersburg Historic District. The Norfolk & Western Railway Company and its predecessor companies made a significant contribution to the development of Petersburg and the surrounding area.
