B&O Railroad Museum: Ellicott City Station

B&O Railroad Museum: Ellicott City Station

The oldest standing railroad station in the United States houses this museum in historic Ellicott City, Md.

Housed in a 180-year-old railroad station that served as the terminus of the B&O Railroad, this museum explores the history of transportation and travel in early America. It does so through seasonal exhibits, educational programs, and living history. Restored once in the 1970's, another restoration in 1999 brought the station back to its 1857 appearance.

We hope you enjoy our work.
