Foley, AL Train Depot T-Shirt Ice Blue by Hometown Heritage
Train depot in Foley, Alabama
Foley, Alabama pays tribute to its importance as a southeastern Alabama railroad stop with the Foley Railroad Museum housed in a former railroad depot that houses a plethora of memorabilia and artifacts relating to its history, including a nearly 1,500 square foot model railroad system! In 1902, a Chicago-based businessman, John Foley, heard about a parcel of land in Baldwin County. Believing it would be the perfect sport for a new railroad station, he purchased 50,000 acres that he sold off in parcels, and in 1905, constructed a railroad station. Unfortunately, the station burnt down in 1908, but due to its importance in the railroad system, it was rebuilt the following year. The railroad served southeastern Alabama for years, becoming a hub of activity for farmers looking to send out their crops and allowing manufacturers of everything from cars to dresses to send their wares to the area. As other methods of transporting freight became more popular, the railroads discontinued service to the area in 1971. Slated for demolition, the building was purchased by Gulf Telephone Company owner John Snook and moved to nearby Magnolia Springs (we wouldn’t want to see the bill for that!). In 1995, the town of Foley acquired the building and moved it back to its original location to create the Foley Railroad Museum.
Harking back to its early days as a railway staple, this short-sleeved t-shirt from Custom Colors features a hand drawn picture of a train moving past the 1909 Foley train station.
