Kentucky City Selling C&O Depot

A Kentucky city is seeking to sell a former Chesapeake & Ohio passenger and freight station that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Mt. Sterling said it is seeking sealed bids to buy the depot, which is located on Railroad Street.

The buyer must buy the building and adjacent property, which is less than a third of an acre.

The winner bid will be “conditionally accepted” and the bidder will have six months to submit a proposal for refurbishment of the depot to the city.

Final acceptance will only become effective once the city approves the renovation plan.

More information is available by calling the city at 859-498-8725. Bids are due by Oct. 15.

Mt. Sterling is located on the former C&O Lexington Subdivision, which was abandoned in the mid 1980s.

The station was built in 1910 and active through the 1970s. It was listed on the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places in 1991.
