Berkeley Springs Train Depot
2010: Berkeley Springs Train Depot is a 1915 Mission/Spanish Revival style depot features a low profile and red tile roof. It is locally significant as being the last remnant of the once-present Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. The depot was rented to the town of Bath (Berkeley Springs) until 2005 as a municipal center and police department. In 2009 the building was closed due to its rapidly deteriorating condition. The heavy roof tiles are falling through the rotting underlayment with temporary supports to stabilize the eaves. Once rehabilitated, the facility will house a community meeting center with displays showcasing the B&O railroad significance with the depot as the remaining icon of the era.
