Dedicated October 8, 1977

Built about 1930 as the first metering station for the Washington area gas supply, this building was saved from imminent destruction by concerned citizens dedicated to both the preservation of the visible past and revitalization of the railroad. On February 16, 1977 it travelled 23 miles by road from Rockville to begin a new existence as the Barnesville railroad station. Its rescue and renovation were made possible by:
