Railroad Depots

The most notable of all the structures associated with the railroad is the depot. These passenger stations were often prominently located within communities and usually boasted the fashionable architectural styles of the era. Many depots have remained through the years, outlasting the closing of many passenger lines in Vermont. However, a number of them were also demolished or replaced. The following list is a chronicle of many of the train stations that once existed, or still do exist, in Vermont. Towns are listed alphabetically by county. And stations are listed chronologically by town. Often a town had several stations over the years. The list is not comprehensive, and some of the dates are rough.

If your station is not on the list, learn how to identify a date by the architectural style.
