The Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Passenger Train Station, along with the adjacent Freight Depot, were built in 1916. The building's design was a product of New York architect Clinton McKenzie. Access to the railroad instantly gave Kingsport the potential to become an industrial community. Even though passenger service stopped in 1954, the area remained a busy thoroughfare.
