Amqui Railroad Station after restoration Amqui Railroad Station before restoration

Amqui Station

Amqui Station was built in 1910 near Old Amqui Road approximately one mile north of its present location. Locals say “Amqui” was an Indian word meaning “parting of the ways”. Popular lore, however, states that “Amqui” was a contraction for “dam- quick!”, which could either be in reference to how long it took to travel from the junction to 12th Ave S in Nashville or how quickly the train could get going after stopping at the depot. No matter what the origin, Amqui was known as much for its unusual name as it was for its service as a switching station. The station was used as a Louisville and Nashville Railroad switching and passenger depot. By the 1970's Amqui Station was dilapidated and threatened with demolition. Country music star Johnny Cash stepped in to purchase and save the stucture. In 1979 it was moved to the Cash property in Hendersonville, TN. After the death of Mr. Cash the station was moved again to its present location on Madison street in Madison, TN.

Now known as the Amqui Station Museum and Visitor's Center its future is to be a museum, a hub of activity for cultural events, an educational facility, and a host of community and social gatherings. Visit the Amqui Station website for upcoming events and happenings.
