Historic Preservation Roaring Springs Railroad Station
Roaring Springs, PA
Our office prepared the project narratives and cost estimates for a 1995 Keystone Historic Preservation Grant application on behalf of Roaring Spring Borough. Through this money and a matching federal grant from the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) grant money administered by PennDOT, the passenger platform canopy of this historic 1905 passenger station will be reconstructed from historic photographs. The one story brick train station, built by the Pennsylvania Railroad about 1905, is the last surviving historic passenger station in Blair County and will house the Roaring Spring Historical Society. The new passenger platform is a timber frame construction to match the original and in accordance with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Restoration. The drawings and specifications were reviewed and approved by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and PennDOT for compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, achievement of original project objectives, and adherence to original budget estimates as described in the grant application.
