Mineral Bluff Depot

Mineral Bluff is located in Fannin County, GA about five miles NE of Blue Ridge.

The brick depot at Mineral Bluff was constructed in 1887 by the Marietta & North Georgia Railroad , a predecessor of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad (now CSX). Located on the now-abandoned line from Blue Ridge, Georgia, to Murphy, N.C., it is only surviving M&NG depot in Georgia.
Using funding from the federal Transportation Enhancement program, the community rehabilitated the building in 2007. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007. (News article on the listing.)

H/T to Dan for the link.


  1. Neat station! So glad it wasn't torn down like they do now. Looks almost exactly the same as it did more than 100 years ago except for the wooden platform! Nice photos and link!

  2. I have another Georgia station post almost ready, Macon. Actually two stations. Another tip from Dan.
