Hamilton Depot Move Set for Today

Movement of the former Baltimore & Ohio passenger station in Hamilton was expected to be completed today (Jan. 17, 2023).

The depot, which dates to the 1850s is being moved in two movements because the structure is two separate buildings.

The first of those building was moved last month more than 1,000 feet north along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to a city-owned lot.

The remaining building is to make the same journey today to be joined with the two-story structure already on site.

The depot was owned by CSX, which donated it to the city with the proviso that it be moved off railroad property.

There has been discussion about making the depot a community center, but no specific use has been agreed upon by city officials.

The depot will be restored to “white box condition,” meaning it will be ready for conversion to suit a business occupant.
