Description:
  • RAILROAD DEPOT
Comments/Directions:
Designed by renowned architect Frank Furness and built by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1885, the depot on West Bel Air Avenue in the city's downtown narrowly escaped the wrecking ball four years ago. Since then, the Historical Society of Harford County has led efforts to raise money and preserve the building. CSX has recently donated land to relocate the depot.

BALTIMORE AND ANNAPOLIS TRAIL
ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND -USA
Location: ANNAPOLIS, MD
Description:
  • RAILS TO TRAILS
Comments/Directions:
This is an old interurban route parallelling Maryland 2 for 13 miles from just south of US-50 to Glen Burnie. The trail is completely paved, and with few hills makes for an easy ride, however there are many cross streets. You are never far from any type of facility you might want from bike rentals, to restrooms, fast food places, etc. At the Glen Burnie end you may connect to the BWI trail for an 11 mile trip around the airport.

Comments/Directions:
Participating in historic, tourist, and economic development activities in cooperation with the Conference and Visitors Bureau, the Maryland Association of History Museums, the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, and the Heritage Tourism Alliance, the Museum presents the historical and cultural impact of electric street and interurban railways on community development across central Maryland. Through the permanent exhibit "Street Car Communities," visitors learn the history of rail transit in the National Capital region and examine the influence of this early form of public transportation on the growth and development of communities within the region. They discover the interurban operations of the Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis Electric Railroad which determined the locations of Fort George G. Meade and of Bowie Race Track while connecting Chesapeake Bay ferries and the Naval Academy in the State's Capital to Maryland's largest city and the Nation's Capital. Visitors may hear Carroll James' 1954 radio broadcast celebrating the last trolley to Thurmont on the Hagerstown and Frederick Railway as they follow maps, photographs, and documents about tourism and community development in Frederick and Washington counties. Focusing on Glen Echo Amusement Park, visitors learn how trolley companies developed recreational facilities to stimulate ridership and development of the adjacent property. Aboard a Museum street car, they experience the nature of suburban rail transit in the trolley era (1890s  1962). The motion, sights, and sounds separate the electric rail vehicle from contemporary rubber-tired, internal combustion vehicles and establish the atmosphere of an earlier era.
