A railroad station and freight shed in Wakefield have been named to the National Register of Historic Places

A railroad station and freight shed in Wakefield have been named to the National Register of Historic Places, the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources said. The Union Railroad Station was built in 1911. The division describes it as “a single story wood-frame building that incorporates characteristics of several late Victorian architectural styles” with a three-sided bay window for viewing arriving and departing trains. The station’s interior was converted to a single-family residence and television repair shop after the Boston & Maine Railroad decommissioned the building in 1956. The Wakefield Heritage Commission purchased the property in 2006 as part of its effort to create the Wakefield Heritage Park Museum. It returned the layout to close to the original construction.
