Description Middletown was the main station along the Erie Railroad mainline in the city of Middletown, New York. Located on Depot Street, the station was first opened in 1843 with construction of the New York, Lake Erie and Western Railroad, which had originally terminated at Goshen NY. The station was located along the New York Division, which stretched from Pavonia Terminal in Jersey City, New Jersey to the Sparrowbush station just north of Port Jervis, NY.The building was opened in 1896 to replace one that had been in use since 1843 when the New York and Erie began service to the city (Manhattan).The Romanesque Revival building was designed by George E. Archer, Chief Architect of the New York, Lake Erie and Western Railroad, later the Erie Railroad.The building served as a railroad station until 1983, when rail service was taken over by MTA's Metro-North Railroad. Service on the route of Erie's original Main Line was discontinued in favor of the Graham Line, an Erie-built freight line now used by Norfolk Southern and the Port Jervis Line and was replaced by the Middletown Metro-North station.The old station depot was renovated and restored, becoming the Thrall Library in 1995.Composed in Photoshop, Photographed in Middletown, NY USA.
