B&O Railroad Depot

-A A +A
1912, attrib. M. A. Long. 1976. South side of E. Main St., west of the intersection with Depot St.

This one-story brick structure has expansive hipped roofs with dramatically flared eaves and protruding gables centering both long facades. The gables accommodate large arched windows lighting the former waiting room. Unfortunately, the distinctive roof tiles were removed when the building was restored in 1976 with ISTEA (Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act) funding. It is now the centerpiece of a small park that has a railroad theme and serves as an access point for the North Bend Rail Trail, a hiking/biking trail converted from the right-of-way.
