Efforts to renovate train station in Hampstead on track, panel says

March 11, 1998

Efforts to restore the Hampstead Train Station on Gill Avenue are moving ahead.

The town has purchased the station, the Hampstead Train Station Committee reported at its March 3 meeting. Also, a tarp has been placed over the roof.

Donations are being sought to cover the cost of restoration and the committee's incorporation. The incorporation is needed to receive funds from the National Historical Trust, Preservation Maryland and the Maryland Historical Society. Incorporation proceedings cost $450.

Raffle tickets and T-shirts are being sold to raise funds, and businesses have put out collection jars.

The Hampstead Train Station, completed in 1913, served as a freight and passenger depot until 1979, when CSX closed it.

Anyone wishing to learn more about the station or make a donation can write to: The Hampstead Train Station Committee, P.O. Box 727, Hampstead 21074.


Hampstead: Firefighters responded at 11: 11 a.m. Monday to a fire alarm in the 200 block of Lees Mill Road. Units were out 23 minutes.
