The historic machine shops of this pre-Civil War railroad complex have been renovated into a multi-modal regional transportation center in a limestone building next to the original1856 limestone Roundhouse. A memorial display has been erected with the history of the site and the men who worked there to keep the trains in good working order. A visit to this site is certainly a step back in time. Display free and open to the public.
