Description   EN

 Laurel Historical Society

Site 32 - B&O Railroad Station

From the CLWT brochure - Charles Carroll of Carrolllton, signer of the Declaration of Independence, initiated construction of the Baltimore and Ohio (B&O) Railroad in 1829.  A stretch was laid through Laurel in 1835.  In 1884, the Queen Anne style station, designed by well-known archictect Francis Baldwin, was built.  It has been in continuous use ever since.


At the listed coordinates, you will find an historic marker that reads:

Built by The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1884, this "American Queen Anne" structure continues in daily use. The architect, Francis H. Baldwin, also designed the rear wing of the State House in Annapolis.

The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

Erected on May 8, 1982

Made a quick stop here. It was dark for pictures, but I'll see if it turned out. Got to see a train go by carrying multi-modal cars.

Walked down to the train station as we toured the downtown area.  Checked the phone and realized there was a cache here!  Really enjoy learning about the history of areas (especially trains!).  TFTC!

1 05 July 2012 cycleangela Found it

This was my last stop before heading home, so the dog and I could cool off, and she could take her nap. I forgot to take the picture at first while I was out getting the info, so I had to turn around and come back. Thanks for the cache!
