On Friday, May 19, 2017 join us at Southern Sates 512 Smiths Grove Rd or the L & N Depot East Main St. Scottsville, KY for a Steak Sandwich Sale!
Steak Sandwich with chips $7.00 – beverage available for $ .50 each.
Sale starts at 8:00 A.M. Central time.
Proceeds go toward restoration of the Scottsville L & N Depot.
There should be plenty of Steak Sandwiches but plan to get your steak sandwiches early – available on a first come first serve basis.
The L & N Depot will be open for your viewing pleasure.
Recently some railroad rails and ties were donated to the Scottsville Kentucky Train Depot. These items will be put to use when last locomotive that served Scottsville comes back.
That’s right Locomotive Number 98 will find a new home at the depot in the near future. Currently the diesel electric 70-ton switch engine sits on a siding in Nashville, TN.
We are asking for contributions to fund the Nashville-to-Scottsville move of the locomotive. Send your donations to the Historical Society PO Box 393, Scottsville, KY 42164 or contact Mark Huntsman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fundraising for the depot restoration continues, and as you consider tax-deductible contributions before December 31st, please keep the Allen County Historical Society’s efforts to save this important part of our history. We are a 501(c)3 organization so your contribution is 100% tax deductible. We have applied for federal and state grants, some of which require matching funds. Your help will be greatly appreciated and will be acknowledged in the restored depot. Just write depot project in the memo line.
In addition to the depot restoration, we are investigating the possibility of purchase, loan, or donation of railroad equipment, possibly a caboose or locomotive as outdoor exhibits. We have found that one of the last locomotives that serviced Scottsville still exists. Rails, ties, and fencing have already been donated. And we are searching for items and stories that may be related to the L&N, especially those related to the Scottsville branch.

Welcome to the Scottsville Kentucky Train Depot
Built in 1886 and closed in 1975 when the rail line was abandoned by the L & N, the Scottsville Train Depot served as a passenger and a freight station for almost 90 years.
The depot stands today as the primary surviving reminder of the days when rail service meant everything to the citizens of Scottsville and Allen County, Kentucky.
Plans are under way to renovate this important building. Grants are being sought, as well as local and regional contributions to help restore the Scottsville Train Depot to its former glory.
