The Historic Summerville Depot is located in the heart of downtown next to Dowdy Park. Featured in the HBO film "Warm Springs," and "MaMa Flora's Family," the depot delivers historic Southern charm and is available year-round for outdoor viewing, but is available for special events rental January - September. The depot and turntable come alive in the fall for "Steam Into Summerville Railroad Days."

Festivals center around our historic Summerville Depot each weekend in October through mid-November. Weekly fall arrivals of the TVRM passenger train give opportunities to see Summerville's railroad turntable in action, as one of the only working turntables in the Southeast. Adults and children of all ages can take a magical 90-minute ride with Santa and his elves on The Summerville Santa Special. 

Summerville's Dowdy and Willow Spring Park are connected by Town Creek Trail, which rambles along Town Creek, with picnic tables and grills for family enjoyment.
