The J. Douglas Galyon Depot was built in 1927 in Greensboro, North Carolina. It replaced another train depot that was located at 400 S. Elm Street. The depot was in operation until 1979. It was then donated by Southern Railway to the city. The depot was restored by the North Carolina Department of Transportation and reopened in 2003. It now serves as a bus station and in 2005 started using the depot once again.
The J. Douglas
Galyon Depot was built in 1927 by a New York firm who specialized in train
stations. The building, which has a neoclassical style, replaced an earlier
depot that was located at 400 S. Elm Street. When the depot was built it was
the biggest and most elaborate station to ever be built in North Carolina.
Around 90 trains passed through the depot in Greensboro each day.
