Cookeville Depot Museum
Originally built in 1909, the Cookeville Depot Museum is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, and is the heart of Cookeville's historic Westside District. The museum houses many Tennessee Central Railway artifacts, as well as an HO scale replica of what Cookeville's Westside looked like in the summer of 1955. On the other side of the diorama is a replica of a coal tipple with a model train loading up with coal.
The grounds surrounding the museum are considered a park area where the museum has a static display consisting of a 1913 Baldwin steam engine, a 1920's classic red caboose, a 1960's caboose, and two small track cars. This area also offers two picnic tables and a number of benches for visitors.
