Lexington Depot

Once a bustling train station that saw 19 engines pass through per day, the Lexington Depot served as a community hub after it opened in 1846, taking passengers to and from Boston.

The Depot is in the heart of Lexington town center.

A gnarly New England snowstorm temporarily closed the branch in 1977, and as it turns out, the route was never restored.

The Depot now serves as home to the Lexington Historical Society.

The only other building still standing on the Lexington branch is the Bedford Depot, which is rich in railroad history.

The Minuteman Bikeway now runs through the former train shed.
