IMPORTANT CHANGES in the MANAGEMENT of the ELLICOTT CITY STATION MUSEUM

The B&O Railroad Museum has operated the Ellicott City Railroad Station Museum for 11 years on behalf of Howard County, Maryland the owner of the historic property through a management contract and grant agreement. At the beginning of June 2017 the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks gave us 30 days' notice that our management contract would end. There was no reason for this move other than the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks made a decision to manage the property as a museum themselves rather than continuing the management contract with us.

For more than a decade we are proud to have brought lively programming, engaging exhibitions and living history to Main Street. The building known as the "oldest railroad station in America" holds national significance and is crucial to the story of the B&O Railroad.

We are disappointed in this decision but are working closely with Howard County officials to ensure a smooth transition. The last day that the museum will be open under our management is August 27, 2017. We wish them well.
