Tuxedo Train Station History
The tuxedo train station was built in 1885, designed by architect Bruce Price. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. In 1980, there had been renovations made in an effort to update the building. The town currently owns the building and in 2009 collaborated with historians to restore it to what historians believed was its original appearance. The station contains a waiting room and a community room that is often used by Tuxedo Clubs and organizations.
The Tuxedo Train Station was highlighted in Roofing magazine’s November / December 2016 Issue.
