Hoschton Train Depot – The four Hosch brothers founded Hoschton in 1881 in the hope of influencing the proposed route of the Gainesville, Jefferson and Southern Railroad. In 1883 this depot was built on land donated by the brothers. The railroad transformed the town and surrounding areas, serving as a catalyst for the development of commerce, agriculture, education, industry, communications, and transportation. The railroad provided a link with other Georgia communities, opened the market for the region’s agricultural products, made manufactured goods widely available, and stimulated the growth of businesses, churches, schools, and the town itself. Train service ended in 1947.
Hoschton is a city in Jackson County. The town was incorporated in 1891. The train depot is really nice, but the few buildings around city hall is plain, no trees, no planters with flowers. Hwy 53 runs through town to Winder. Hoschton to Braselton 1 mile.
