The Little Pelhamville Depot: Forerunner to the Train Station Serving New Haven Line Passengers Today

There may be only one known image of the tiny wooden depot that once stood about where the One Wolfs Lane (the Pelham National Bank Building) now stands. That image, which appears below, is taken from an engraving prepared for an article that appeared in the January 16, 1886 issue of Scientific American. See A Remarkable Railroad Accident, Scientific American, Jan. 16, 1886, Vol. LIV, No. 3, pp. 31-2 (the first page of the issue is page 31).

This little depot is the forerunner to the Pelham Station built to the east along Pelhamwood during the 1890s that still serves passengers today.
