The lives of the residents of the valley were greatly
changed with the addition of the train depot in 1851.
The Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton Railroad (C.H.&D.)
was now carrying passengers and stopping here.
The eight hour trip to downtown Cincinnati was
shortened to 39 minutes! The area's population
exploded with this new form of transportation
bringing people to the suburbs.

The cost, less than nine cents a ride, made it easy
to catch one of the 19 trains that stopped at the
depot each day. As the area developed, the depot
became known as the Lockland-Wyoming Station.

However, street cars buses and cars weren't far
behind. In 1942, the trains were no longer carrying
passengers and the depot was soon demolished.
In 1961, the land was purchased by the
City of Wyoming for use as a park.
