|The Western New York Railway Historical Society is proud to own two excellent examples of railroad station heritage. Located in the northern and southern regions of Erie County, New York. Our first acquisition, in the town of Orchard Park, was deeded to the society in July of 1982 after leasing the depot for over 13 years. The Williamsville, New York depot, became Society property in 1990. Both towns, embrace our efforts and are in full support of the historical heritage that they bring to their communities. As our restoration work progresses, we hope that in the near future both will be prime examples of railroad transportation history. There were thousands of small town and village passenger and freight stations at the turn of the last century. Today, there are only a handful of these Depots that still exist in their original locations. We are very fortunate to have two fine examples of days gone by.|
