As an attraction for potential home-buyers, the Loring Land and Improvement Company constructed a railroad station on the site just to your right for the planned subdivision of Dunn Loring. An 1880s advertisement notes that "Good railroad accommodations are provided; a tasteful and comfortable depot has been erected...and telegraph and postal arrangements have been made."

Unlike most other stations, which were built in a standardized style by the railroad, the Dunn Loring station reflected the late Victorian character of the surrounding homes and businesses. After passenger service stopped in 1951 the station functioned as a post office. It was torn down in 1963.
