The Gainesville Amtrak Station, formerly known as the Gainesville Southern Railway Depot, is a train station in Gainesville, Georgia that is served by Amtrak's Crescent. The street address is 116 Industrial Boulevard, near downtown Gainesville. Constructed for the Southern Railway in 1910, the red brick station was built to replace an earlier depot damaged by a tornado in 1903.[2] Most of the building is railroad offices, with some space reserved for a passenger waiting area.[3]
