Amqui Station Farmers Market 10: The Depot

So this is the old train depot.  I’m not exactly sure of the entire story, but I think it was originally located in Hendersonvlle, and Johnny Cash would drive by it whenever he was returning to his home on Old Hickory Lake.  He watched it fall into disrepair and eventually acquired it, and he and June Carter ran it as a boutique and railroad memorabilia museum.  He donated the structure to nearby Madison, AT&T donated some land, and the structures were moved to this location in the middle of a park, where it now serves as a museum and community center. I think that’s the story.
