Originally built in 1909, the Cookeville Depot Museum is on the National Register of Historic Places and is the heart of Cookeville’s historic WestSide district. The museum houses Tennessee Central Railway artifacts, as well as an HO scale replica of what Cookeville’s WestSide looked like in the summer of 1955. On the other side of the diorama is a replica of a coal tipple with a model train loading up with coal. The grounds surrounding the museum are considered a park area where the museum has a static display consisting of a 1913 Baldwin steam engine, 1920s classic red caboose, 1960s caboose, and two small track cars. This area also offers picnic tables and a number of benches. Please feel free to bring a sack lunch and stay a while.
Admission is Free.
