The (former) Elkin & Alleghany Railroad Office was restored in 2016 to meet the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation. The "certified historic structure" was designated as a "certified rehabilitation" on May 12, 2017. The Town of Elkin Main Street Advisory Board has nominated the railroad office for the 2018 NC Main Street Award for "Best Historic Rehabilitation Project".
Located on the west end of Main Street, we sit at the crossroads of the OverMountain Victory National Historic Trail, the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, and the Elkin and Allegheny Rail Trail. We are centrally located in the Yadkin Valley Wine Region with more than 40 tasting rooms to explore.
Convenient to local downtown restaurants and entertainment. The Elkin Municipal Park is a short walk away. Enjoy the view and peaceful sounds from the Big Elkin Creek Waterfall.
After 19 months of planning and rehabilitation work, the railroad office was opened as a destination rental in December 2016. The 523 sq. ft space offers a parlor, kitchenette, bedroom, and full bath. The parlor includes a pullman sleeper sofa, chairs, drop table, and Smart TV.
