The B&O Railroad connected the dots for many budding settlements when it charted its way from Baltimore through the mountains to the Ohio River. Salem was one of these. During its boom-town years in the late 1800s the station became a busy place! Even after the years of prosperity, Salem Depot served the town of Salem well through both of the World Wars and, as noted by historians, though a depot may be owned by the railroad company, it becomes a kind of trademark for the townspeople, earning a place in their hearts that remains long after the railroad company’s tracks are taken up.
