    a favorite milestone when cycling the Harelm Valley Rail Trail. I’ve seen it evolve over the years from seriously neglected to wonderfully rennovated.

    Nice pictures. I always wondered what it looked like inside. Looking at your last picture above where it looks a step away from being condemned, it’s really great to see that it was saved and renovated so nicely. When I was taking pictures of the stations last year this was one of the hardest ones to get since it’s almost impossible to park without trespassing on someone’s property. (I guess it would be a lot easier on a bike, but I was in a car.)

    Emily: I so enjoyed your photos and recently took a car trip there (1 1/2 hours from my home in lower Westchester); sadly, it’s gated with tall shrubs to obscure any good views. I realize it’s a residence now but the Frank Lloyd Wright-type residences near the Westchester County Airport are open and more visible for even a passing brief glance. Thanks, however, for enlightening us about our local history.

      I think the fence has always been there, but the previous owners never seemed to keep it closed. Last time I drove by, it appears they repainted the outside as well, it is not the original green color that many of the old stations used to be painted.

    Just so you know, the Existing Railroad Stations in New York State site is claiming that Sharon Station was built in 1873:

    my retired aunt owned this station in the early 70’s till her death in the 80’s. she used it for stage theatre and had numerous bands perform in it. the only toilet plumbing was a dual outhouse on the side of the station. it was cold (real cold!) in the winter, and the old wood stove upstairs kept us warm when we visited. downstairs was never heated i remember numerous freight trains coming by and we’d wave to the crew from the station masters bay window upstairs. my cousin tried to repaint and scrape it himself but gave up many times. the outside dental-work was too intricate. the station was sold upon her death and ownership moved on. good to see the old place.
