The Cowpens railroad depot was built in the 1870s for the Southern Railway. Local citizens saved the depot from destruction and moved it to its current location to serve as a community center and museum. An excellent example of a medium-sized depot from the golden age of American railroads, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. Displayed items include clothing, photos, medals, and personal letters of former USS Cowpens crewmen.

Open by appointment and during special events and holidays.

Maintained by the Town of Cowpens and the Cowpens Historical Society.
