Delta city gets funds to renovate historic depot
Published: December 8,2011
GREENVILLE — A $108,000 grant from the state Department of Archives and History will help with renovations of the old Greenville Yazoo & Mississippi Valley Railroad depot in Greenville.
Officials tell the Delta Democrat Times the depot needs mostly cosmetic repairs and a new heating and air conditioning system and a new roof.
Walley Morse, with the Greenville/Washington County Historic Preservation Commission, says the present station was built in 1945. It was once used for passengers and then for freight. Morse says the commission took over the depot about three years ago.
Officials say they want to preserve the outside of depot, allowing the owners to make the inside as modern as they want.
