Looking for a unique place to stay the weekend?
Youíve found the right place, Hill City Train Depot & Inn.
This is a great opportunity for train buffs to step back in time to when
depots were regularly used.
The first train came through Hill
City in 1867, and the Selma, Rome & Dalton Railroad which later became
the Southern Railroad, built a depot there in 1907. In 1956 the
railroad sold the depot to Homer Davis who moved the building and
transformed it into a country store and post office. In time, the
depot fell into disuse and disrepair. The vacant building became
an eyesore, gradually deteriorating and waiting for someone with vision
to recognize that it was a diamond in the rough.
That someone was Linda Turner.
She and her husband, Robert, bought the depot, restored it as a store
and gift shop, and opened for business in 2001 as the Hill City Station.
In 2009, the Hill City Station has
been turned into an Inn that sleeps four adults or two adults and three
children. You can sit on the porch and watch trains go by on the
Southern Railroad. The Station is located in a scenic area that
was voted "Best Fall Colors in Georgia in 2008".
The Station has a
nice country setting and when the Indianís were there it was called Blue
Springs, a Cherokee Indian Village. Also located near
by is the
Capital of the Cherokee Indians before their removal to
the Chief Vann House and the
Museum in Rome, Georgia. Also five minutes away from the
Capital of the World!
Your stay at the Train Depot Inn
includes a continental breakfast, a tour of the old house filled with
relics that Linda and Robert have gathered and saved, and the use of a
swimming pool in summer months. Call Linda today and make your
