Vineland Depot, Whiteville, NC

   The Vineland Station Historic Train Station is Whiteville, N.C.’s civic center. Built originally in 1903, it is one of North Carolina’s original brick depots. It got its name Vineland from the expansive grape vineyards that once covered the area. Vast quantities of these grapes were shipped from the station.

   It sat in disrepair for a number of years until a joint effort by Columbus County, the City of Whiteville, the N.C. Department of Transportation, Carolina Southern Railroad and a non-profit committee came together to extensively renovate the building to its original luster.

   The main room, or warehouse, has the original exposed brick walls, slate roof and restored heart pine flooring and ceiling timbers. The offices and history gallery have much of the original bead board wall and features of the original train station.

   Vineland Station hosts a number of public events such as art shows, music performances and fund-raisers, as well private events such as weddings, receptions and seminars.
