About REALLY SideTracked - Orchard Park Depot
The Orchard Park railroad depot is not your average small town railroad station. Built in 1911 by the Buffalo, Rochester Pittsburgh Railway, it was uncommonly substantial thanks to the railway president, Harry Yates, who lived in the village of Orchard Park. The depot is an exact replica a stone H.H. Richardson depot in Auburndale, Massachusetts. The only difference is the Orchard Park depot is made of "Tapestry Brick".
It is uncommon for a village this size to have a depot of this stature with a freight house, 100 feet away. Mr. Yates, spared no expense, taking care of his little village. The passenger depot features separate men's and women's waiting rooms, wooden wainscoting, exposed wooden ceiling beams and most of all the original wooden benches.
In 2007 the Orchard Park Depot was placed on the National Registry of Historical Places by the United States Department of the Interior. The interior of the depot is open to the public during the summer from 9am to 1pm up until Labor Day.
