Who We Are

The Friends of the Aberdeen B&O Train Station, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit.  The Friend’s vision is to preserve the Aberdeen B & O Train Station as the Historic Gateway to Aberdeen and America’s Railroading Heritage. 

The organization is dedicated to the preservation of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad’s only existing station on the Philadelphia Subdivision in Maryland.  The Aberdeen Station was constructed in 1885.  It will be the only publicly accessible historic building in Aberdeen when rehabilitated.

The station was marked to be torn down in 2003. A last minute agreement was made by CSX and the Historical Society of Harford County to save the building from demolition.  In September 2016, the Aberdeen Room Museum & Archives took over the project to restore the train station from the Historical Society of Harford County. During that time, private contributions and several grants were obtained to fund the project. Then, in June 2020, a new non-profit was officially formed, The Friends of the Aberdeen B&O Train Station, Inc., whose focus is solely the restoration of the train station. 

In short, The Friends of the Aberdeen B&O Train Station, Inc. is a group of dedicated people, hopeful that the restored train station will serve as an educational and economic catalyst for the present and future of Aberdeen, Maryland.
