Seaboard Coast Line Railroad Station (St. Petersburg, Florida) - History

History

The station was constructed in 1926 by the Tampa and Gulf Coast Railroad Company, the second railway line to enter St. Petersburg. The office building and warehouse are built of brick in masonry vernacular style and are the city's only substantially unaltered example of railroad architecture. The line and building came to be owned by the Seaboard Air Line Railroad (SAL), and the building continued in use as a freight depot for that company until 1967. In that year, SAL merged with Atlantic Coast Line Railroad (ACL), forming the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad and the depot was closed.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    Most events recorded in history are more remarkable than important, like eclipses of the sun and moon, by which all are attracted, but whose effects no one takes the trouble to calculate.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Don’t give your opinions about Art and the Purpose of Life. They are of little interest and, anyway, you can’t express them. Don’t analyse yourself. Give the relevant facts and let your readers make their own judgments. Stick to your story. It is not the most important subject in history but it is one about which you are uniquely qualified to speak.
    Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966)

    These anyway might think it was important
    That human history should not be shortened.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
