Great Falls Depot, also known as the Seaboard Air Line Railway Depot, is a historic train station located at Great Falls, Chester County, South Carolina. It was built in 1911-1912 by the Seaboard Air Line Railroad. It is a one-story, rectangular brick building, with a hipped roof and eaves that extend six feet beyond the building. The design of the waiting room area exemplifies the prevailing early-20th century practice of separate accommodations for blacks and whites.[2][3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
