Today the oldest surviving railroad station in an urban setting, President Street Station stands proudly among new skyscrapers and a redeveloped waterfront. Sited near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, Harbor East, and Little Italy neighborhoods, the station welcomes visitors to learn about Baltimore’s 19th century railroads, perilous journeys to freedom along the Underground Railroad, President Lincoln’s travels through the city, and how Massachusetts soldiers traveling through in 1861 confronted danger and death just steps away from the station’s grand entrance.
