Cowpens Depot is a historic train station built in 1896 by the Atlantic and Charlote Air Line Railway. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997, it is a museum emphasizing naval World War II history. It features personal items that once belonged to crew members of the U.S.S. Cowpens, including clothing, letters, photos and medals. The building itself is a very good example of late 19th century depot architecture.
