Thurmond Depot has been restored as a NPS visitor center. I was there with 4 other photographers two days before July 4th. We were the only people in Thurmond. Once a boomtown, bringing in the most money for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway, there was never a road in Thurmond, or a sidewalk and the boom population was only several hundred.
