Description:The Museum of History is housed in Albany's Union Depot, built in 1912 for use by the five different railroads that served the city. Seven rail lines radiating out of Albany converged at Union Depot. Passenger trains of the Central of Georgia, Atlantic Coast Line, Georgia Northern, and Albany & Northern and the Seaboard Air Line called at Union Depot. At its height, as many as 55 trains came through Union Depot daily. Today, the station, which was placed on the National Historic Register in 1975, is called the Discovery Depot and serves as a local and regional history/heritage museum.
