Built in the 1800’s, located in Middletown, NY. This station is fully restored, contains the city Library, a museum, and used book shop today. I can vaguely remember when this station was still in use when I resided in Middletown areas.
It was not until the completion of the Erie in 1843, that the era of greatest usefulness and importance was inaugurated. Its growth has been rapid ever since. No place on the Erie between Paterson and Binghamton exceeds Middletown in the extent, importance, and reputation of its manufacturing interests, The disposition of the citizens of this place toward proposed enterprises of every kind in its precincts has been uniformly generous and encouraging. Its hat factories, saw factories, file works, milk condenseries, and carpet factories are among the leading of their class in the country. This was a trade center of the rich dairy region of Orange, Sullivan, and Sussex counties.
The station ceased railroad use on May 23, 1969.
