The Station House, Depot Lane, Schoharie, NY

The Station House

The Schoharie Valley Railroad began operation in 1867 and was joined by the Middleburgh Railroad the next year. The line met the Albany & Susquehanna Railroad at the Schoharie Junction near Central Bridge. Until 1942, the railroad moved people and goods (such as apples, hops, plums, hay, grain, ice, flag stone and dairy products) out of the Valley while bringing in coal, dry goods, tourists, etc. The original station house burned down and this one replaced it in 1875. Now owned by the Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association, it has been restored as part of the Schoharie Valley Railroads Museum.
