The Depot

The Depot at Highland Park, 2007

Geneseo’s Railway Station once located at the foot of Court Street was built in 1875 to replace an old one just to the south, which became a warehouse. This station served a short branch of the Erie Railroad that ran from Mt. Morris, where connections could be made to New York, Buffalo or Olean, to Avon where connections could be made to Rochester, Attica or Corning. Privately owned, this Depot with a waiting room heated by a pot-bellied stove, a baggage room and a ticket office, was cozy and friendly and served the community well for many years
