Remarks & Notes 
Victorian Gothic Icon
Although completed in 1875, what you see here in 1984 (and even today) is essentially the result of the 1931 restoration of the E. Francis Baldwin-designed station. In the afternoon of June 27, 1931 the station was struck by lightning and gutted. As evidenced by drawings from the B&Os Office of Engineer of Buildings, the restoration work began promptly in July 1931. Credit goes to the B&O official who ordered its full restoration.
