The Greenback Depot is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion A in the area of Transportation from 1914, the year the depot was completed, to 1954, when operations ceased, at the local level of significance. A railroad-created town, Greenbacks small downtown prominently features the depot which was an essential component of the commercial core. Although a railroad stop had operated from this location since the 1890s, this depot building served as the location for passenger and freight service for just over forty years. Located adjacent to the historic commercial district, the depot was an essential part of the fabric of downtown Greenback.
