“Dunnellon was platted as a railroad town in 1890 when trains provided a major source of transportation. In 1908 the Atlantic Coast Line railroad built the depot on South Williams Street. In its early days, the Atlantic Coast Line carried produce, timber from virgin long leaf pine forests, passengers and phosphate. For some passengers and cargo, the journey continued on steamers plying the St. Johns River.
Youngsters crowded the station, waiting for a glimpse of caged animals roaring by on the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus train. During World War II, the trains carried troops and military equipment.” To read more click here

I’m having trouble leaving you a comment, Alice. I got verification failed. I said something like I love murals that show a bit of history and this one is great. Nice area, too.
