Inscription.  
This corner portion of the brick foundation of Parksleys original 1884 station, a two story structure built by the NYP&N, was uncovered in 1988 when the museum's Hopeton Passenger Station was moved to this site.

The 1884 station was moved to Cooke Street in 1906 when it was replaced by a single-story station similar in design to the Hopeton Station. The 1884 station has been used continuously as residence since it was built, as it was designed to house the agent's family on the second floor. Railroad business and freight were handled on the first floor.
