Atlantic Coastline Railroad and The Chapin Company jointly built the Depot to provide a much-needed transportation link between the mainland and the beach. Although based on ACL’s standard station design, structural enhancements gave the depot some Mediterranean features that reflected the local architecture of the day.

Between September 26 and October 5, expect to welcome between 20,000-25,000 leather-clad visitors to our fair city.
