 History of a Painting - Germantown, Ohio Train Depot.

 

Acrylic Painting by Larry Johnston©

While on my way from an Art Festival in Ripley, West Virginia to another in downtown, Detroit, Michigan, we had some extra time, so we started sightseeing some of the back roads to find some great subject matter to paint.

During that time, Train Depots were on my to do list, when we came upon the one in Germantown, Ohio. I took several photos of the building and later painted it.  There were four Railroad Depots that were in my "Depot Set", with Germantown being one of them.  The other three were, the depot in Juliette, GA, Cartersville, GA and the Depot in Hope Arkansas.

Good morning Larry. There are a number of old railroad stations in our area, most of been rehabilitated into something else, as the trains no longer stop at these locations.

That looks so much like the old train depot in Clarksville. I guess they used the same plan over and over.
