This shed greets passengers traveling by train at the North Charleston Amtrak Station. The depot was built in 1956 for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, replacing the Union Station depot in downtown Charleston (seen in the black-and-white image below). That station, which stood on the corner of East Bay and Columbus streets, burned on January 11, 1947, leaving only the shed, which remained in use until 1954. When the current North Charleston station opened in 1956, it also replaced a smaller North Charleston depot, which was located near the present site. The stop preceding North Charleston is Yemassee, and the train leaves this depot to head to Kingstree.

The North Charleston Amtrak Station has served passengers for over 60 years; however, a new station is planned for the future. The new Amtrak station will serve as a general transportation hub, encompassing rail travel as well as public buses operated by the Charleston Area Rapid Transit Authority (CARTA) and taxis. The depot will be built adjacent to the current site and cover more than 14,000 square feet.
