Greater Dunnellon Historical Society

We’ve come together to preserve Dunnellon’s history for the
benefit of the community, and we’d love it if you joined us.

A Commitment To Our History

The Greater Dunnellon Historical Society maintains the historic depot and is dedicated to ensuring its place in history as well as a site for community events. Members would like to see the depot bustle with activity as it did in its heyday.

Learn About Dunnellon’s History

Dunnellon was platted as a railroad town in 1890 when trains provided a major source of transportation. In 1908 the Atlantic Coast Line built the depot on South Williams Street.
