The town of Covington, Virginia, located in western Virginia, was a major stop along the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. Although passenger service is no longer available in the town, the town has preserved its two depots. The Red Depot is used to host events and can be rented out. The other depot, the old Chesapeake and Ohio Depot, houses the Allegheny Historical Society Museum. Although most of the museum focuses on the region around Covington, you can still see the old ticket office and the waiting room. There is even a model train display.
The C&O Depot is located at 149 Maple Avenue. Please note that this museum is only open during the week. It does not open on weekends. Parking is street parking, and there is plenty of it.
