Laurel Railway Train Station Improvements,
Laurel, DE

This Colonial Revival passenger depot was constructed between 1908 and 1912; however, historic maps suggest the original passenger depot was actually located several blocks south, but was razed to make way for this existing structure. In 1988, the Laurel Train Station was identified as a contributing feature to the Laurel Historic District, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Town officials applied for federal funding from the Delaware Department of Transportation with the desire to rehabilitate the train station for meeting space, archives, and antique displays.

HFA surveyed the train station and found while there were no serious problems that posed a risk to the public, the exterior building and some structural elements in the basement are in need of repair. HFA also completed the Historic Building Condition Survey of Laurel Railway Train Station and construction documents for exterior improvements. The recommended exterior improvements had to preserve its original appearance and compliment the previously approved architectural plan for interior renovations.
