Hamilton CH&D Railroad
Update - May 2021
The historic Cincinnati, Hamilton, & Dayton (CH&D) Railroad Depot on Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. Blvd in Hamilton is at risk for demolition. The current owner, CSX Transportation, has notified the City of Hamilton that the depot will be demolished if the city does not relocate the building by March 2021.
The city is considering a plan to relocate the depot on city-owned property near MLK Jr. Blvd & Ludlow Streets. This would allow the building to be saved, stabilized, and positioned for redevelopment.
CHAPS is supportive of the these efforts to save this important piece of Hamilton and Butler County history. To demonstrate support, we have launched a petition and encourage community members to sign here:
