A little history lesson...the railroad through Calico Rock was built by the St. Louis & Iron Mountain Railroad. In 1903. their depots were built of lumber and were painted bright yellow and green. In the 1940's, the depots had deteriorated and had to be renovated. They used asbestos siding and painted them white with brown or burnt orange trim.
Later, you'll be able to enter the Calico Rock train depot at the turn of the century. The bulletin chalk board on the side of the depot is original to the Calico Rock train depot.
