Backstory and Context
Like other small, rural towns, the arrival of the railroads in Evergreen in the early 1860s was a significant economic boost. Rail lines were constructed to connect Evergreen (and other towns and cities, especially Montgomery) with Mobile and Pensacola. The Louisville and Nashville bought the rail line 1900 and built the depot seven years later.
