Between 1904-1906, the Piney River & Paint Creek Railroad built a line from Beckley Junction to Cranberry, passing through Beckley where it established a depot.  Photo, circa 1906.

This structure is said to have served the GC&R as its depot in Beckley. Photo is looking down present-day 1st Ave., towards Neville Street and present location of the First Baptist Church.
