THE MOST UNIQUE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
UNDER ONE ROOF

Established in late 1999, the owner’s vision for the Whistle Stop Depot was to create a place where visitors can see and touch history through the years. This vision has become the most unique shopping experience under one roof!

Whistle Stop Depot is located in the beautiful town of Franklin, a place that is rich with culture and heritage, and can be found on the southern side of the Great Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina.
