Terrace Park, as you may have learned before in my recent posts, is not just a small suburban community on the outskirts of Cincinnati. Oh no, it is much more than that. It has a rich history that has been passed down from generation to generation. Within this history are tales, tales of the many buildings and landmarks that make up Terrace Park, Ohio.
The Railroad Station of Terrace Park is an old but very historic place. Although this exact railway station is not still standing, the place where it was is still perfectly intact. It’s also a lot closer to home than I ever knew before.
About 3 weeks ago, as we were sitting around the dinner table discussing any topic that popped into someone’s head, my aunt brought up something that I had never heard before. It was that Terrace Park used to have a railroad station that ran through it to bring goods and people into Ohio. Not only did it exist, she told us, but her house where she resides today was the old railroad station back in the day.
The fact that I had never heard anything about this before truly baffled me because this is the kind of stuff I like to know.
My aunt’s house, located just down the hill from St. Thomas Church, was the perfect place for this station to be placed. It’s surrounded by woods, a river, and is right along the area of what is now Wooster Pike. I’ll never look at that little house the same again.
Now there’s a fun fact for you.
