Built: 1884. The Gaithersburg Railroad Station and freight house were built in 1884 as handsome replacements for the adjacent small frame structure which served as a freight depot when the Metropolitan Branch of the B & O Railroad was extended to Gaithersburg in 1873. The picturesque Victorian brick station house, with separate ladies' and gentlemen's waiting rooms on either side of the ticket office, was proof of Gaithersburg's success as a major shipping center and commercial crossroads. The railroad and impressive station soon attracted businesses and suburban commuter residents to Gaithersburg, spurring the incorporation and growth of "Olde Towne" and ushering in a new era of progress.

Architect: Ephraim Francis Baldwin. National Register Site. Gaithersburg Historic Site HD-3.
