A North Carolina Railroad Station in
ROXBORO (Also see Woodsdale)
Former Lynchburg & Durham Railroad freight depot. Later used by the Norfolk & Western Railway. As shown by the historic photo below, the freight depot was at the rear of the passenger depot. In later years, the freight depot was moved and the passenger depot was demolished. An aerial photo below provided by Paul Folmsbee shows the original depot location and the current location of the freight depot. Recent repairs to the roof of the freight depot indicate that it is still being used, presumably for storage.
