A former Baltimore & Ohio passenger station in Hamilton may be moved this November.

The depot is slated to move northward to a location near the CSX Cincinnati Terminal Subdivision but away from the tracks.

It is currently situated where the Indianapolis Subdivision diverges from the Cincinnati Terminal Sub.

Built in the 1850s, the station was saved from demolition when local interests raised money to move it. The City of Hamilton has budgeted $2 million to pay for the move.

The station is two buildings, one of which is a single story while the other is two stories.

A contractor preparing the building for movement recently discovered that the two-story building sits on wood flooring with a concrete cap over a four-foot basement.

That basement space will need to be filled in before the building can be moved, something expected to add to the cost of the project.
