Old Frisco Station, Amory, MS

This is one of a series of vignette-style paintings of historic buildings of our local community that have been torn down.  This train station  was one of many similar structures that fell victim to demolition before more recent initiatives to preserve historic buildings across America. This station was the half-way point on the trip on the Frisco Railroad from Memphis, Tennessee to Birmingham, Alabama.  One of Amory’s celebrity visitors to this building was President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The painting was detailed with pen and ink to compliment the watercolor.
