NEW FREEDOM RAILROAD STATION

Built in the mid 1860s by the Northern Central Railroad, New Freedom represents the standard railroad plan for a rural station.

The station was rebuilt in 1885 by adding a larger freight shed to the end of the station. By around 1910, the building was enlarged to its current size.

Ownership of the building was transferred to the County of York in 1990. A project to restore the station to its 1940’s appearance was completed in 2003.
