The Chesapeake and Ohio Passenger Depot in Pikeville, Kentucky was built by the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway in 1923.[3] The station along with a small baggage depot nearby were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 23, 1987.[1]

The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway reached Pikeville in 1907.[3] The depot is a one-story brick structure built in the Classical Revival style of architecture.[2] About 150 feet (46 m) from the depot is a small, similarly designed baggage station.[4] At one point, the depot and baggage station were connected by a canopy, which has since been removed.[2]

The building now houses the Big Sandy Heritage Center.
