Stapleton Station







Stapleton Station, Lynchburg, VA
located in the historic Old City Cemetery

My hubby did some great work here, he took these with his Android cell phone, way cool, don't ya think??! I do!!! The first one is my new laptop screen savor. We took a drive back in early July 2020, more pictures from that day I will share soon, I wanted to space them out a bit!!

((signage at the museum))
"Station House Museum
This Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Station was in use at Stapleton in Amherst County, VA from 1898 until 1937. It is the only remaining C&O "Standard Station" of its size and style. 

In 1999-2001 the badly-deteriorated Station was dismantled board-by-board and reconstructed here to interpret the importance of railroads in the history of Lynchburg. Through employment, war, and accident, thousand of people buried in this cemetery lived and died by the railroad.

The furnishings and instruments in the Station Agent, Passenger, and Baggage Rooms are typical of the World War 1 era."

Hope you are well today. Thanks for stopping by. Take Care!  Beth ( ;

I love it! It is very similar to the station in Marlinton, WV but Marlinton's is longer. (See it on my post at https://webcroft.blogspot.com/2015/06/main-street-marlinton.html)

I love being able to see things like this through blogs like yours because I rarely get the chance to travel on my own.
