Mississippi - Canton Historic Train Depot and Museum

Canton, MS - Experience the Railway Heritage of Central Mississippi!

The Railroad Comes to Canton! The Depot was built in 1890 and in 1926 the north and south buildings were added. The Illinois Central Railroad Company owned and maintained the depot until 1991 when it was purchased by the Canton Redevelopment Authority.

The restoration was completed in June, 1999. The museum reflects the history of Madison County and how the "iron horse" affected social and economic growth and development, particularly the area in and around Canton.

The Depot Museum celebrates that segment of history in Canton and Madison County which continues to attract railroad and history enthusiasts from all walks of life. From the Mississippi Central and the Great Northern to the Illinois Central, Amtrak, and now Canadian owned Illinois Central, Canton continues to be on the mainline of mid-America.
