Depot History

The Paris Train Depot was constructed in 1882, built in late American Victorian style, handcrafted completely from wood and topped with a tin roof.  It was expanded in 1908 and again in 1911 by Louisville & Nashville Railroad, commonly called the L & N, and the property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

During the depot’s heyday, the station was crowded with salesmen, students commuting to college in Lexington and Georgetown and people traveling for business and leisure to Lexington, Louisville and Cincinnati. Racehorses shipped from local thoroughbred farms to New York and Baltimore, with the owners behind them in Pullman cars, the first-class travel of its time.

The railroad helped Bourbon County farmers export their products to distant markets – weekly shipments of cattle, sheep and hogs were send to Chicago meatpackers.  Hemp and grains also shipped from Paris.

When the city built a small opera house on Main Street, actors and actresses arrived in Paris by trains. These celebrity arrivals and departures were witnessed by locals who gathered at the depot to see the stars.

According to the National Register of Historic Places, Teddy Roosevelt, then a presidential candidate, made a whistle-stop speech at the depot, where he was greeted by local children who had been dismissed from school for the occasion.

As the nation grew in the 20th century, new innovations in travel came along – automobiles, the interstate highway system and airplanes. The importance of railroads to the American economy – and to Paris and Bourbon County -- began to diminish. By the late 1960s, the last regular passenger train pulled away from Paris.

 In the early 1970s, CSX gave the depot to the city on a lease which could be terminated at any time. But CSX kept the land underneath it – a key reason the depot sat vacant and decaying for a large part of the last 50 years.

The property did contain several businesses over the years, including the beloved former Iron Rail Restaurant owned by Charles and Ann Ramey of Paris.

In 2017, Darrell and Debbie Poynter and their sons Chris and Brian acquired the depot from the city under the condition that it be historically restored. The Poynter family also purchased the land underneath the Depot from CSX – making a renovation possible.

Paris businesswoman Dottie Spears, who has long had a vision to help grow the Paris economy and bring tourists to town in addition to serving local people great food at good prices, opened Trackside Restaurant and Bourbon Bar in the depot.

Definitely going back. The food and service was excellent! They have done a great job restoring the train depot and the outside patio is warm and toasty for outside dining especially in the winter. Our group got the Hot Brown, Fried Chicken and beignets. Canít wait to go back and try more!
