Jan. 1922 – New Railroad Station

Plans to built a new railroad station on State Street near the river were underway.   The Follansbee Review reported that the city needed a new “freight depot and passenger station.”  With several passenger trains stopping each day, and extensive freight business passing through, the two old dining cars used as a depot were inadequate.
