Camden, also known as the Seaboard Air Line Railroad Depot, is a train station in Camden, South Carolina. It serves Amtrak, the national passenger rail service. [3] [4] The station was built by the Seaboard Air Line Railroad in 1937. It is located on 1100 West DeKalb Street ( US 1), although some sources give the address as being at 1060 West DeKalb Street. Either way, it was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. [2] The station is in disrepair, and a renovation project is scheduled to commence in August 2014. [5] The station renovations were completed in early 2016.
