Historic Greyhound Bus Depot.

Historic Greyhound Bus Depot

The restored Greyhound bus depot in Blytheville is the only remaining Art Moderne Greyhound bus terminal in Arkansas, and the only Art Deco island-style Greyhound station in the U.S. that is preserved with its original look. Its structure preserves even some less honorable aspects of area history, with separate entrances for "Coloreds" and "Whites."

A freestanding art deco former Greyhound bus station has been restored and is at the corner of West Walnut and North 5th St. in Blytheville.

The chamber of commerce opened it up as a museum; it contains displays about its history. Debra Jane Seltzer tells us there are many more of these Greyhound buildings preserved, some even still operating such as this one in Jackson, TN
