Landmark Details: The Mission style architecture of the train station designed by A.M. Griffin exhibits a Flemish influence. The building represents the growth of the transportation industry in Wilson, which paralleled the tobacco boom, and greatly affected the rate of the town's growth. The building is cruciform in plan, with a small square porter's room in the same style to the east. Both buildings have red Spanish terra cotta tile roofs. Restored in 1997, the station operates daily with trains to New York and Florida. Be sure to visit “Miss Rail Rose,” waiting for the train.
