Herndon’s Historic Railroad Station

Circa 1858

Herndon Station Raid

..."Mosby gleefully reported that he had taken 25 prisoners—a major (Wells), 1 captain, 2 lieutenants, and 21 men, all their arms, 26 horses, and equipments.”


  1. ...I love it. Railroad stations had a very distinct architectural style.

  2. I love all the old RR stations. My husband has modeled a few of them.

  3. I always enjoy seeing our History. Nice post.

  4. It's in remarkably good shape for its age - looks new!
