R.J. Corman Razes ex-B&O Depot in Dover

October 31, 2015

We’ve received word that sometime this week R.J. Corman tore down Dover’s last remaining railroad station.

The station once served the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad line that extended to Wheeling, West Virginia, via Massillon and Holloway.

A period American Sheet & Tin Plate Company building across the street also was razed a year or two ago.

The former Cleveland, Lorain & Wheeling’s Uhrich Junction freight station is likely to be demolished next as RJC continues its purge of old and no longer used structures.

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.
