The Lakeshore and Michigan Southern Railroad built the Olmsted Falls
Depot in 1876 as a part of major improvements made along the line
between Cleveland and Toledo. The depot replaced a smaller flag stop
station in Olmsted Falls at the Columbia Road railroad crossing. By
1909, the depot was moved from Mapleway Drive on rollers by a
locomotive to this site to be closer to the heart of the village. In
the early 20th century, ten trains a day stopped here One was the
"Plug," which took commuters between Olmsted Falls and Cleveland.
By mid-century, cars and planes had largely replaced train travel.
The last regularly scheduled train stopped here in 1949 and service
ended completely in 1960. The depot became the home of the Cuyahoga
Valley and West Shore Model Railroad Club in 1977 and was listed on the
National Register of Historic Places in 2000.
