The Seaboard Air Line Railway Depot in McBee, located on West Pine Avenue (SC 151 at US 1), was built in 1914. McBee was a stop along Seaboard’s 91-mile route between Columbia and Cheraw, which was in turn part of Seaboard’s main route between Richmond and Tampa.
Amazingly, given its age, the building has not undergone any major renovations since it was built. When Seaboard stopped its passenger line in the 1960s, the depot stood vacant for 20 years. Eventually, it was purchased by the Town of McBee and converted into the McBee Library and Railroad Museum. It is now listed in the National Historic Register.
Many thanks to Melissa Roberts of Barnwell for these great pictures she took in 2012.
