Hamilton B&O Depot on the Move

A portion of the former Baltimore & Ohio passenger station in Hamilton was moved to its new home on Tuesday.

The station, which was built in the 19th century is two structures and each must be moved individually.

Tuesday move involved a two-story structure. The remaining one-story structure is expected to be moved next month.

The station is being moved more than 1,000 feet northward on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to a city-owned site.

For decades it sat at the junction of B&O lines to Indianapolis and Toledo.

The station was donated to the city by CSX. City officials are still determining what use will be made of the depot once it is in place at its new home.
