Belt Line Station: History and Style

Now designed to accommodate up to 250 people for a seated event, the depot has a history going back more than 120 years in Durham. The tracks which run alongside the depot were first used by the Lynchburg & Durham Railroad Company, which was formed in 1887. Three years later, the tracks from Lynchburg to Durham were completed and spanned nearly 42 miles in North Carolina and 115 miles overall. Over the years, the depot has served as a loading dock for various tobacco companies, for textile products, and more. Learn more about our history here!

What People Are Saying About Belt Line Station

  • Excellent, rustic venue for your next event! Perfect for a Fall wedding ceremony. We had our wedding here this past September and it was perfect! #cgleague for pictures. If you’re looking for an all inclusive event venue, this should definitely be on your list!!

  • Belt Line Station was everything we hoped it would be for our fall wedding. We loved the space – so rustic and beautiful it required little extra decoration – and working with Becky, our coordinator, made the planning process a breeze! With their in-house catering, we didn’t have to worry about juggling multiple contracts. And all our guests raved about the food! On our wedding day, Belt Line set everything up for us and ensured the reception was absolutely seamless. From beginning to end, our day was as wonderful as we hoped it would be.
