Welcome

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.

ALLOW YOUR PRESENT TO MINGLE WITH THE PAST! ... See MoreSee Less

"allow your present to mingle with the past" - I like that phrase! never heard it before. Anybody get the credit for thinking it up? being the source of inspiration? believe me, my present has mingled with the past all of my life, my children's too, even grandchildren's lives. Maybe the combination of present n past is a richer part of our individual heritages than we ever thought about. ♥
