Custodial History
The station was built by the Canada Southern Railway in 1871-1873 and served as both a passenger station and as the company's corporate headquarters. Throughout the years, many railway companies operated in the building including the New York Central Railroad, the Michigan Central Railroad, the Penn Central Transportation Company, Conrail, Amtrak, the Canadian Pacific Railway and the Canadian National Railways. Passenger traffic through the station ceased in 1979, and the station was officially closed in 1980. In 2005, the building was purchased by the North America Railway Hall of Fame, who carried out a campaign to restore the building. As of 2017, it remains the home of the North American Railway Hall of Fame and is available as an event space.
