The Hattiesburg Intermodal Center

The train station, originally built in 1910, occupies about 2.28 acres at 308 Newman Street. The building is about 14,000 square feet.

In April 2007 a $9 million renovation of the station, using combined federal and local funds, was completed. The station was unveiled with a black-tie gala on the night of April 20 and opened to the public the next day on April 21, during a Spring Art Walk.[1][2]

Two retired train engines reside at the station. One is the Bonhomie & Hattiesburg Southern No. 300, built in 1925 and retired in 1961[3].
