D T & I South Charleston Depot 

The depot on west Mound St. in South Charleston, Ohio, was erected in 1878-79 as a passenger and freight station for the Springfield, Jackson & Pomeroy Railroad.  The railroad reorganized as The Detroit, Toledo & Ironton in 1905.  The Depot was sold to the Heritage Commission Corp. for $1.00 and has been converted to a museum and historical society headquarters. The bay window and roof overhang on the track side of the building that had been removed by the DT&I many years ago,  were reinstalled during the restoration.

D T & I Depot at Jackson Center, Ohio 3390 Baker Road south of St. Paris Pike in Springfield

"This station was moved from Jackson Center, in Shelby County, by a private individual in the 1970s. It was restored and maintained in near original condition some 40 miles from its prior location. It features the distinctive 1920 style of Henry Ford when he owned the D T & I railroad and selected gray as the station color and with large signs. A very good example of Ford influence on the railroads under his ownership in that era." - Scott Trostel
