Rip Van Winkle Country
The Ulster & Delaware Railroad Historical Society has a purchase option on the former U&D station at Roxbury, NY and we have the second half of the required funds, but not the first half: The O'Connor Foundation has offered a matching grant of $80,000.00 ($30,000 toward the purchase price of $60,000; and $50,000 toward anticipated restoration work of $100,000.00), if we can raise an equal amount from other sources. This beautifully preserved building is a hidden treasure - used for years as a feed warehouse, then as an auto body shop, it is almost entirely sheathed in a web of corrugated metal and garage doors, almost completely unrecognizable as a railroad station - but behind the camouflage, the original station structure is almost completely intact, down to the stained-glass window trim in the waiting room.
