Built in 1901 for the Central of Georgia Railroad, it served as the union station for all lines. Designed by Bruce and Morgan of Atlanta. Passenger service ended in 1971. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Sent to a future Columbus visitor in 1907, when the Central of Georgia passenger depot was just a few years old, this postcard features warm sentiments to the would-be traveler: "Hope you will have a happy time until you reach this spot and pleasant times long after"
