At the heart of the village was the Bournedale Railroad Station where steam engines whistled and bellowed smoke while passengers milled about the platform awaiting passage down Cape or to the major cities of the East. Today the swirling currents of the canal carry marine traffic over the site of the Nye home and the Bournedale Station.
