Excerpts from the National Register of Historic Places nomination for the former depot:
When the railroad was built through Catlettsburg Col. Laben Moore granted right of way to them. Col. Moore was a congressman, an officer in the 14th Kentucky Regiment Union Army, and an attorney in Catlettsburg for many years.…

The depot appears on the 1900 Catlettsburg Sanborn Fire Insurance map. The City directory of 1897 indicates the C&O Railroad was still using the original wooden depot that had been built by the Chattaroi Railroad in 1880, located about 125’ north of the nominated building. When the new depot was finished, the old wooden depot had a large addition built on it and was used as a freight station for many years. It was destroyed by fire about 1964. …

Railroad passenger, mail, and express activity were curtailed at Catlettsburg in 1958.
