Guide to the Ashford (AL) Railroad Depot Records, 1899-1908

Record Group 033

Extent:  5.5 cu ft

Historical Sketch:  [Ashford Depot]:  Ashford, Alabama, is a small town in southeast Houston County.  For most of its history, it was a center for naval store production, pulpwood harvesting, and cotton agriculture.  In March 1888, the Alabama Midland Railway built a small depot of Victorian railroad architecture in Ashford to be a waystation along the Bainbridge-to-Montgomery route.  The depot was the only building to survive the 1915 fire that destroyed the rest of the town.

The original depot received additions at least twice—an enclosed warehouse and open loading dock were added to the east, followed by racially-segregated passenger waiting rooms on the west side.  The depot faced two sidings that served for loading turpentine from the Adams Company still 1 block away, and pulpwood.  Cotton bales, fertilizer, and a single sweet potato crop were loaded from both sidings. 

The depot changed hands as railroads consolidated.  The Alabama Midland was absorbed by the Atlantic Coast Line which merged in the 1980s with Seaboard Air Line to form the Seaboard Coast Line.  CSX bought Seaboard Coast Line after the Ashford Depot fell into disuse.

Ashford depot fell into disrepair after it closed in 1978.  In the 1980s, concerned citizens founded a preservation committee and received a grant to add a new roof to the building.  This committee also placed the depot on the Alabama Register of Historical Places.  It remained active into the 1990s.

Mayor Bobby Alloway revived the depot preservation committee after his 2000 election.  This committee will incorporate and seek tax-exempt status in 2005.  It has received two US Department of Transportation grants ($850,000), two Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs grants ($290,000), and one Alabama Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) grant ($7500) to thoroughly renovate the depot.  Construction began in Fall 2004.  The Committee and Ashford City officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony on November 17, 2005, to mark the end of Phase I of the reconstruction.

Scope / Content Note:  Contains business forms, instruction manuals, operational instructions, internal memoranda, tariff guides, railroad regulations, contracts and agreements for rights-of-way, etc., photographs, ledgers, and artifacts all related to the operations of the Atlantic Coast Line depot in Ashford, Ala., and the tracks leading into and out of Ashford.

Organization:  Organized into 7 series:  1. Administrative Files;  2. Division Files;  3. Agreements; 4. Photographs; 5. Ledgers; 6. Artifacts; 7.  Miscellaneous.

Provenance: In preparation for the 2004 renovation, the Committee donated these accumulated records to the The Wiregrass Archives at Troy University—Dothan Campus with the stipulation that they be allowed long-term loans of materials for display in the Depot Museum.  Committee Records will be turned over to the The Wiregrass Archives in 2005

Processing Notes:  The Wiregrass Archives Processors imposed order onto the Depot and Historical Records.  Town of Ashford Records were removed and placed into a discrete, self-titled collection numbered RG 044.

Access Limits?  Open per Donor Agreement signed Nov. 17, 2005.  Certain files restricted because of privacy issues
