Cameron Depot

The Calhoun County town of Cameron is named for the conductor of the first train to roll through the community in the 1890s. The Manchester and Augusta Railroad built a line through the town in 1894, and the community was incorporated as Cameron in 1896. Soon afterwards, the Manchester and Augusta line became the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad (ACL), and this passenger depot was built for the ACL rail line in the early twentieth century. The railway through Cameron later became the Seaboard Air Line. Today the town owns the former depot, which has been restored and relocated form its original location parallel to the tracks, though it still stands near the railroad tracks.

Hey Kelly, yes it does! The train is still active right through the “Pretty Little Town” of Cameron, the Cotton and Seed Plant is right across the tracks.

Hi, I was wondering if a train still runs past the cotton & seed plant? Thank you, Kelly, Summerville.

I have taken a more recent picture of this depot and it has the flags in front of it. I do believe it represents the town and history with a better image if you would like to see it
