Located in one of the only Victorian Queen Anne Train stations in North Carolina, the Hamlet Depot serves as an active passenger depot as well as home to the Hamlet Depot & Museums. The hands-on exhibits, visual displays, and interactive consoles encourage you to explore the history of the Seaboard Railroad and Hamlet. The Hamlet Depot & Museums features many unique attractions. From exhibits describing the city’s rich and vibrant history to model railroads and interactive exhibits. This free experience has something for everyone!
Hamlet functioned as division headquarters for the Seaboard Airline Railroad at the crossing of the two tracks. Upwards of 30 passenger trains daily passed through Hamlet. Downtown boomed with travelers and workers of the railroad. Hotels, shops, and restaurants served this thriving community.
As you walk though Hamlet's historic downtown district, see local landmarks that were shaped by the town's rich railroad legacy. To enjoy the Seaboard Trail, simply follow the dotted red line on the sidewalk. At each red circle you come to, be sure to stop and see the historic site and read the brochure to discover the importance of each location!
