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!

  • I cannot say enough good things about the care and attention that Michelle and all of the Cotton Room staff gave to us on Saturday. Everything we needed was taken care of and our expectations were far surpassed. The venue was gorgeous, the staff was kind, smiling, and seemed eager to assist, and the day went flawlessly. Thank you so much!
