Crozet Railroad Station

These photographs were taken by Rufus Holsinger in 1913 in Crozet, Virgina, just a few miles west of Charlottesville.  Many decades later, the railroad depot would become the Crozet branch of the Jefferson Madison Regional Library. With the new library just opening this month and the books moving from the old depot to the new building, here is a look back 100 years.
