Tutwiler Train Depot Site, Lexington – Mississippi Mondays September 7, 2020

For today’s Mississippi Mondays post, I looked at Tutwiler in Tallahatchie County, and chose the Tutwiler Train Depot Site – https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/mississippi/visit-hidden-ms-store-for-satisfying-meal/ as this week’s choice. The depot was demolished a while back, and I found a photo taken shortly before it was demolished – see the Flickr link below. The slab is still there and several sites have links to photos of it. I found an older photo of what the train depot looked years ago – see Blogs Related link below.

I am not seeing an official website. The city’s About website: http://tutwilerms.com/about/about.php

This took a lot longer than expected.
