The Magnolia Depot, built in 1893, is one of the oldest extant railroad depots in Mississippi. The depot was the entry point to Magnolia during its days as a turn of the century resort. The building retains its original floor plan with a large baggage handling area, ticket office and dual waiting rooms.
Although there have been some alterations, the building retains many turn of the century picturesque architectural elements such as shingled-gable ends, irregular fenestration (including a bay window) ands geometrically-placed transoms and upper sashes.
