Ann Street Station

Railroads played an important role in the development of Parkersburg. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad reached Parkersburg in 1857, and the railroad bridge over the Ohio River was completed in 1871. It measures 7140 feet in length and at the time of its opening was the longest railroad bridge in the world. For many years Parkersburg was a well-known stop on the main line of the B&O Railroad from Washington to St. Louis and a major transportation center with its rail, river and highway connections. The Ann Street Station pictured here stood on this site from 1887 to 1959 and served the north-south line between Huntington and Wheeling. Another station, a few blocks away on Sixth Street, served the more heavily used east-west line
