|I grew up around the old Kanawha &
Michigan Depot, but by then it was called the New York Central
Depot, for the NYC Railway who was now the owner. This
Depot was located at the end of Broad Street (now Leon Sullivan Way)
near the railroad tracks. It was right across the street from
the Elk Hotel and my Uncles beer-joint, "Bernie's".
The depot was built in 1897 and included a warehouse just across Broad
Street that is now the Farmers Market. See the warehouse here
. Many people forget that just a block down the street sat a beautiful
house on the corner of Broad & Lewis that used the exact same
materials as the Depot. Same red tiled roof, same Turret, same
brick. There's no doubt in my mind that a connection existed
between these two structures, but to this day I don't know what
they were. The Depot was torn down in 1975 to make way for the Interstate.
The house was torn down many years before that as I recall.|
