The Norfolk & Western Railroad built the original train depot.  It served the community for many years and was demolished in the 1950s.  Construction of the new depot began in 1996 and was completed in 2003. 

The depot houses a museum and art gallery.  Bramwell residents donated the photographs, articles, and coal mining memorabilia featured in the museum. The museum tells the story of the people living in Bramwell. The depot also showcases the art and photographs of local artists in the Gallery at the Depot.
