HAMILTON, Ohio — The two structures of Hamilton’s historic railroad station will move in December, the Hamilton Journal-News reports.

City Engineer Rich Engle said Wolfe House & Building Movers had scheduled an early December move, with a more detailed schedule still to come.

The two structures — a one-story and two-story building — will be moved about 1,000 feet from their current trackside location to prepared foundations at the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Maple Avenue. The moving company and LRT Restoration are slated to handle the brickwork to connect the structures to the new foundations.

The building dates to the 1850s and has seen visits by Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, and both Franklin D. and Theodore Roosevelt. CSX donated the structure to the city in 2021 and had asked for it to be moved from its current site by May, but preparations have been complex [“Hamilton, Ohio, station move could come in November,” Trains News Wire, Oct. 2, 2022]. The city has budgeted $2 million for the project, but concerns remain that the project will exceed that figure.

  1. Glad to see that this piece of history is being preserved. So many of these links to our past have been lost. I wish them well.
