Amqui Station

Onsite Amqui Events & Operations Manager

Amqui Station


Job Summary

The Amqui Tennessee Passenger Station and Signal Tower were built by the Louisville & Nashville Railroad in 1910. Typical of southern station designs found in the region, it had deeply over-hanging eaves supported by triangular knee braces, had an agent-operator’s office and baggage room, engine room, battery room, second-story signal operator’s room, and separate waiting rooms for black and white passengers.

Johnny Cash often visited the signalmen at Amqui Station during the 1970s. He acquired the old train station in 1979, saving it from demolition. Today, it has been restored to a museum and educational center. A visitor’s center and pavilion have also been added for special programs and events, such as the Women’s History Month event, Tennessee Maneuvers Reenactment, Veterans Remembrance Day Living Encampment, and many more!
