Train Depot Closing for Renovations
"Preserving the Depot is very important to both City elected officials and staff. It quite literally put Holly Springs on the map. I use it as a reference point all the time, and I have never met anyone who didn't know where the Holly Springs Depot was located. Over the years, I have heard so many stories from people who have celebrated lots of happy times at the Depot with family and friends, from birthday parties for one-year-olds and 80-year-olds, baby and wedding showers, anniversary parties, and graduations. Our community has had a lot of happy times between those walls and so much of our community's history is tied to the Depot. We're grateful for the opportunity to keep it well-maintained so that many future generations are able to enjoy it, " said Erin Honea, Communications & External Affairs Director.
The City contracted with Caldwell Cline Architects to propose exterior renovations to the Holly Springs Train Depot that would remain true to the history of the building while also achieving a consistent look with the Town Center Project. Renovations will include the addition of windows throughout the main meeting space, replacement of the handicapped ramp and decking as well as painting of the exterior façade. The City will also expand the parking lot for the Depot and will add an access drive to Palm Street.
