Overview

Own a Piece of History: Unique Historic Train Station for Sale in Essex, New York

Seize this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history with this iconic train station, dating back to 1927. Nestled on a large 15.4-acre property, almost touching the scenic Bouquet River, this unique estate offers an unmatched living or business opportunity.

Imagine the thrill of world-class train spotting right from your backyard. This historic site was initially built to serve the County Home residents and now stands as a testament to time, awaiting your vision.

Spanning 1,600 square feet, the building presents a unique blend of past and present. Half of the structure has been partially converted into living quarters, complete with a kitchen, allowing you a glimpse into its former life. The other half remains untouched, preserving its original character as a train station with passenger benches and authentic flooring.

This property offers endless possibilities for reimagining and revitalization. Thanks to its resource management zoning, a wide array of uses is feasible with a Special Use Permit, making it ideal for creative entrepreneurs, history enthusiasts, or anyone dreaming of a unique commercial venture.

While the building requires restoration, there are opportunities for historic preservation funding to assist with costs, particularly if maintaining a public use aspect, such as a business or nonprofit.

Don’t miss this incredible chance to transform a historic landmark into your dream project on the picturesque Adirondack Coast.

Property eligible for State and National Historic Registry and if registered can unlock tax credits and can also potentially grant funding for the renovation of the structure.
