SCOTTSVILLE — The L&N Depot used to be a big deal in Scottsville.
“The building served as a combination passenger and freight depot. There was quite a bit of economic development,” said Allen County Historical Society President Jewell Keen. “The oil boom (which happened in the early 1900s) probably lasted longer because of the railroad. The Jackson Hotel was built to house people who were coming into town.”
The railroad went from Gallatin, Tenn., to Scottsville, and was supposed to go farther north, said historical society Treasurer Mark Huntsman.
