The Bell Trail is a short segment of the old Starke to Wannee line called "Old Peggy," which was abandoned in the 1950s. The train depot was sold to a private party who moved it to High Springs in 1982 and remodeled it for an antique store. The abandoned rail right-of-way and historic train depot were purchased by the town in 1995 with ISTEA funds. The depot was returned to its original location and is now the Bell town hall.
