The former Baltimore & Ohio station in Dover, Ohio, was demolished early this week. The station, which sat next to a rail line that once extended to Wheeling, W.Va., had been in decrepit condition for years.

An effort by a local railroad historian to save the structure failed.

The building was located on Third Street. At one time, a Pennsylvania Railroad branch to Marietta, Ohio, crossed near the B&O station. The ex-PRR line has been abandoned.
