Hello everyone and Happy 2017! I’m very behind in posting, especially on this one, as I had visited this location in July 2015.
For the history of this train station and museum, please click here for the official site. There is a sign on the building that provides the history of the train station as well. I have included a close-up of it.
What I find very interesting is the fact that this station was built in Maywood when it was underdeveloped. If you are familiar with this town, you will know that today, the train station is minutes away from Route 17 and Bergen Commons shopping mall. This area was mainly farmland and homes. This station was built to provide transportation for both passengers and freight, leading to Jersey City, NJ and Middletown, NY.
If you browse the official Museum’s website, they provide a schedule of events and which days they are open. I believe they will reopen in the spring and close at the end of fall or beginning of winter. Go enjoy!
