Hanover in Anne Arundel County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Stoney Run Train Station
This generous donation to the State of Maryland was made by Marvin and Margaret Wolfe as a legacy to Marvin's father, Marvin Fulton Wolfe (06/21/1906 - 06/05/1994). Marvin F. Wolfe worked for the Pennsylvania Railroad (P.R.R.) as a track foreman from 1927 until his retirement in 1973, during which time he had a perfect attendance record. His father, Lewis Worthington Wolfe, and brother, Harford Wolfe, also retired as track foremen from the P.R.R. Together, the three family members had over one hundred thirty-four years of service with the railroad.
Marvin Wolfe lived on Stoney Run Road from his early childhood. He only left once to serve as a soldier during World War II, where he fought in the invasion of Normandy.
After Marvin Wolfe's passing, his son Marvin purchased the family home and, along with his wife Margaret, lovingly restored it. Years later, they decided to sell the home and were faced with making a decision about what to do with the historic rail station. The family contacted Heffner & Weber, the company that was designing and building the new MDOT headquarters building. They explained the history of the station and indicated that the family would like to donate it to the State. The gracious offer was accepted. MDOT agreed to fund the restoration of the station and move it to the present site just a few hundred feet from its original location at the end of Stoney Run Road.
We would like to thank all those involved in making the donation of this historic structure possible.
