Inscription.  
This train station, built in 1883, marked the local terminus of the Baltimore and Ohio (and later the Chesapeake and Ohio) Line. The station was moved from its original site to its current location in 2004, making way for Washington and Lee University's Wilson Hall, adjacent to the Lenfest Performing Arts Center.

Omicron Delta Kappa is a national leadership honor society that was founded by fifteen student and faculty leaders at Washington and Lee University on December 3, 1914. In 2010, ΟΔΚ moved its national headquarters from Lexington, Kentucky back to its first home in Lexington, Virginia.

ΟΔΚ recognizes the qualities of scholarship, service, integrity, character and fellowship; and identifies, honors, and develops leaders in collegiate and community life. Omicron Delta Kappa strives for excellence in leadership on over 300 college and university campuses.
