Built in 1830, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum: Ellicott City Station is the oldest surviving railroad station in America and the original terminus of the first 13 miles of commercial railroad in the country. The site features the Main Depot building, constructed in 1830-31; the freight house, a replica of the first horse-drawn passenger rail car and a 1927 “I-5” Caboose. Housed in the freight house is a 40-foot HO-gauge model train layout showing the original thirteen miles of commercial rail track stretching from Baltimore to Ellicott Mills.
