Visitors center and gift shop in historic railroad depot

Moncks Corner grew up around a railroad intersection and depot in the 1860s. The depot provided the local farmers and lumbermen a way to get their products to market and for homeowners and businesses to receive mail and supplies. After WWII, rail travel and freight shipping declined with an improved highway system. Trains stopped using the depot as a stop in 1975. Fortunately, Moncks Corner kept this important part of railroad and local history by renovating it and evolving it into the town's Visitor and Culture Center and gift shop. It is also a favorite place to hold events.
