Baltimore & Ohio Railroad.
Here in 1830, passengers on B&O horse-drawn cars stopped to eat at the Relay House.
Meanwhile, the relays of horses were changed for the remainder of the 13 mile journey between Baltimore and Ellicott's Mills, hence the name Relay.
In 1835, a second station superseded the earlier one.
In 1872, a large combination passenger station and hotel was erected on this spot. It was razed in 1950.
This stone is from that building.
