Inscription.

Built in 1890 by Rutland Railroad President Dr. William Seward Webb (1851-1926), the Railroad Station was originally located near the center of Shelburne to serve passengers of the Central Vermont and Rutland Railroads. Designed by architect Robert Henderson Robertson (1849-1919), the structure features overhanging eaves supported by brackets and hipped and curved roofs, flared walls, and eyebrow windows.

After passenger rail service was discontinued to Shelburne in 1953, Dr. Webb's son Vanderbilt Webb and son-in-law, Cyril Jones, gave the building to the Museum.

The exhibit features the stationmaster's office, waiting rooms, telegraphy systems, maps, and railroad memorabilia.
