Historic Huntsville Depot

Climb on locomotives, examine Civil War graffiti, and listen as robotic ticket agents tell about working for railroad. Exciting hands-on programs available. It's the home of Rocket City BBQ Cook-Off and Whistle Stop Festival. The Huntsville Depot was used as a Union hospital, prison and as quarters for both black and white Union soldiers, who left graffiti on the third floor walls.
