Background

Parkesburg Station is located at Maple Street and South Culvert Street in Parkesburg Borough, Chester County. Currently the station has a simple shelter with an accessible platform, and parking for 40 vehicles. There are no ticketing or baggage services, restrooms, or indoor waiting areas. The 1905 station building, pictured above, has been closed to passengers for decades. Local members of the National Railroad Historical Society have been active in preserving the building and working with Amtrak, PennDOT, and Parkesburg Borough to find appropriate uses for the historic structure that support station-area improvements.
