Whiteville, NC Depot

Trying to find out when our Depot was built. Tax record refer to the Wilmington - Manchester Railroad line around 1850. I can not find out anything about the depot. Let me know where to look if you can not help. Thanks

The "Official Military Atlas of The Civil War" shows the location of a depot at Whiteville,N.C. during the period of 1861-1865. (Plate 139) You may want to correlate this location to the present one.

The Whiteville NC depot was most likely built during the late teens or early 1920s as a replacement for an earlier wood combination depot. Everything I've come across to date (ACL employee magazines, ICC records, etc.) indicate that most of the ACL's brick depots on the Northern Divison were constructed during this period. Will attempt to dig a little deeper and see if I can find anything specifically regarding the Whiteville depot.
