The Shenandoah Valley Railroad was chartered in 1870 to connect the Pennsylvania (Cumberland Valley) Railroad at Hagerstown, with Virginia and Tennessee Railroad in Salem, Virginia. The line was connected to this point in 1880. A large Victorian station was constructed in the 1880s at this location to serve as a dual station for the Shenandoah Valley Railroad and for the Cumberland Valley Railroad, which ran from Chambersburg to this location.

Forced into receivership in 1885, the Shenandoah Valley Railroad was absorbed by the Norfolk and Western Railroad in 1890. The Norfolk and Western Railroad merged 1n 1982 with the Southern Railway to form the Norfolk Southern Corporation.
