1. Wellington and Powell Railroad Marker
Inscription. This brick vault was once housed in the depot of the Wellington and Powell Railroad.

The W&P ran between Windsor and Ahoskie in the early to mid 1900ís carrying produce and passengers.

There was a hill on the trainís route it often had trouble climbing. Passengers sometimes had to literally jump out and help push cars to the top. That led to people jokingly refer to the W&P as the “Walk and Push.”
