Anniston Train Depot Destroyed by Fire

ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) - A fire has destroyed a train depot in Anniston listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Anniston fire Capt. Chris Collins said firefighters received the call at 3 a.m. Sunday and arrived to find fire shooting through the roof from the largest part of the L&N train depot, which is more than a century old.

Collins said the building is a complete loss. The fire had been burning for some time before the call came in.

Firefighters battled the fire through the early morning hours and did not leave the scene until 11 a.m.

Collins said the fire's cause was not immediately determined.

Jim and Ann Stephenson bought the passenger depot building in 1995 from architect Julian Jenkins, according to Anniston Star archives.
