This building of duplex design housed the Stationmaster in one section and other railroad employees in another. The railroad traditionally provided such housing close to switching yards and depots for its always-on-call employees.

The Stationmaster's responsibilities included collecting freight duty and overseeing the area.

Dating from 1915, the structure now sits at Market Station, only two blocks from its original location beside the tracks of the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad.
