Civil War trails sign about this historic site that dates to 1866 (the original was destroyed during the war), but it retains some of its Civil War-era features.
Through out the course of the Civil War, the B & O Railroad was of vital strategic importance to both armies. So much so that Confederate General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson tore up the rail lines and burned the Roundhouse in what is now Martinsburg, WV, so that transportation of men and arms would not be possible for this local. The structure that stands today is the rebuilt version.
