This an older image of the freight depot

     The freight terminal building was constructed in 1930.  Construction costs were $65,000.  Originally, it had 7000 square feet of space. It also had platforms and ramps. The last business at this site was called Gully’s, a discount operation. Currently  it is abandoned.  It has obviously undergone multiple modifications.

   Less than a block away stood the Seaboard Airline Railroad Passenger station.  It was located on East Riverside Drive.  Construction costs were $75,000. The building was 200 feet long.  The train shed measured 500 feet. The architects were Wiley and Clark of West Palm Beach.  The building was recently demolished.
