Transportation to the Colored Industrial Fair and Colored Farmers Convention.

Wilson Daily Times, 18 October 1910.

Wilson’s Norfolk Southern passenger station stood at the corner of South Spring (now Douglas) and East Barnes Streets.

Detail from 1908 Wilson, N.C., Sanborn fire insurance map.

A Google Maps image shows that the much-modified rail station is still standing, as is the cotton and freight platform, which was completely enclosed subsequent to 1908.
