Built over 100 years ago as the city’s train depot station, The Depot is a beautifully restored facility situated at the gateway to downtown Albemarle. The Depot has played host to a variety of events, from weddings and receptions to birthday parties, reunions and corporate events. The building houses a medium sized banquet hall, catering kitchen, and a smaller area with a wet bar.
