Inscription.  John Roper Branner provided the land for the East Tennessee & Virginia Railroad Company to pass through Mossy Creek in 1858 as it completed its new route connecting Knoxville and Bristol. Branner stipulated that all passenger trains must stop in Mossy Creek. The first train depot, completed in 1870, burned in 1930, and a new building was erected later that same year.
