White Post, Virginia 

The depot at White Post was originally a part of the Shenandoah Valley Railroad which stretched from Hagerstown, Maryland to Roanoke, Virginia. The original station was dismantled in 1950 and this smaller structure replaced it. (The Norfolk and Western Historical Society archives has a picture of the first White Post station here.)

The Shenandoah Valley Railroad was chartered in 1867. It reorganized following bankruptcy as the Shenandoah Valley Railway in 1890 and later that same year was absorbed by the Norfolk and Western Railroad.
