Train Depot sign

A point of pride and revitalization for Opp is the Opp Train Depot and Conference Center. What began as a working train depot in 1928 is now an event center for the "City of Opportunity." The historical landmark which can hold approximately 440 people was equipped with new floors, a kitchen, and a handicap-accessible ramp while features like the doors, windows, and frames were refurbished.
