In 1847 the Alabama legislature launched a project to connect the Tennessee River with the Coosa River with a railway from Guntersville to Gadsden. Work on the project stopped in 1861 because of the Civil War but resumed after the conclusion of the conflict. It was during this time the Guntersville Depot was built. The first scheduled passenger trip from Guntersville was in October 1892. The Guntersville train depot was dedicated as a historic site in 2000.
