Orange Belt Railway Station


In 1888, this site was the original location of the Orange Belt Railway Station. A newer station was built in 1900, but burned down. The present station was built in 1924, and used by the Atlantic Coast Railroad Company until the railroad was discontinued in the late 1970's. By the late 1980's, the tracks were removed and the Pinellas Trail now occupies the track bed. This historic station is one of only a few remaining buildings left that exemplify the area's railroad history. Today, this building is occupied by the Dunedin Historical Society & Museum, and showcases collections from Dunedin's history.
