City Directories and History: The Seaboard Freight Station was constructed in circa 1890. The Georgia Carolina and Northern Railroad came to Chester at that time and necessitated the construction of the large warehouse. The name was later shortened to the Seaboard. The site now houses the Chester County Transportation Museum.
The Herald reported on Oct. 16, 1889 – “That improvements to the depot of the Richmond and Danville Railroad will provide additional room for freight storage.”
Restoration of this building took place under the leadership of Joanna Angle and Alfred Chisholm of Chester, S.C. who for many years used this building as their restoration headquarters.
