The Talladega Chamber of Commerce has come into a windfall for a location. The old L and N Railroad depot has been converted into offices and reception rooms, but the atmosphere of the excitement of the traveler in and out of the depot has been cleverly preserved by the enthusiastic group, whose idea it was to preserve the building. The Talladega Beautification Council members are largely responsible for the idea.
Once you step into the old building, you can almost sense the hustle and bustle of the train passengers. The old ticket window remains unchanged with the massive brass bars above a gleaming white marble counter. You can almost see the ticket agent behind the impressive brass and marble, adding the price of a ticket to some far away exciting place.
