Boones Mill Train Depot To Be Moved Friday Morning

Boones Mill, VA - Over the past few days crews have been prepping the Boones Mill train depot for its big move Friday morning.

Overnight Thursday crews lifted the more than century-old building, using jacks, onto a support structure.

Thursday they added wheels for the trip about a quarter mile away.

Norfolk Southern crews were also out putting finishing touches on the route the move will take

which includes a trip over tracks where there is no crossing.

Town officials say the field next to Carter Bank and Trust is where the public can gather to watch the historic moment.

The move is set to begin at 9 AM.
