     The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Depot in Everglades City opened in 1928.  The railroad line ran from Immokalee to Everglades City from 1928–1956.  It carried freight and passengers.  It was a Spanish style stucco building with a central tower.  The station was closed in the 1956.  For a while, it stood unused.  However, it was converted into a restaurant called the Old Station Restaurant.  Over the years, other restaurants using the depot included Everglades Seafood Depot  and Restaurant, Everglades Seafood Depot, and Everglades Outdoor Center.

     The old depot was used in the movie Wind Across the Everglades.

     The author visited this site on 2/7/2022.  The building is abandoned and padlocked.  There are obvious signs of deteriorating.  It is sad to see this historic building in such condition.
