Ellicott City Station [MD]

Completed by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in 1831, this National Historic Landmark is the oldest railroad station in America. The site showcases the people who built and operated America's first railroad, tells stories of soldiers and citizens caught in the turmoil of the Civil War, and highlights the clash of technology that transformed America's transportation systems from roads to rails.

The site offers exhibits, tours, and recreational and educational events (including living history events).
