The building is interesting in architecture. Gift shop is average--may have specialty books about the area that are of interest. We boarded the train there for the trip to Frostburg--love the dining car and the staff seem to enjoy their jobs.

This is a neat historic building, some statues out along the front, information inside with the park's service. A playground out front my son had to play on. The Maryland Western Railroad is here as is the C&O Canal.
