Ranger Station Construction Notice


In April 2019, the rehabilitation construction began for the Earleigh Heights Rangers Station and is currently scheduled to conclude in Spring/Summer 2020. The building and all of its surrounding amenities (bathrooms, fountains, parking lot, etc.) will close to the public during construction. 

Limited parking and several porta-pots will be available in the B&A Trail parking lot across the street from the Ranger station. Drinking water will not be available during the construction, so please plan your trip accordingly. Rangers will continue to patrol and be available by phone at Jonas and Anne Catharine Green Park (410) 222-6141 or (443) 679-6575 during normal operating hours.

The B&A Ranger Station, once known as “Frost’s Store” was built in 1889 as a general store. The building style is an example of Second Empire-style commercial architecture and was popular throughout the country between 1850 and 1885. While formerly it served as a train station, store and post office, it now serves as the ranger station and railroad museum. 

The current rehabilitation efforts will provide structural stabilization to the main hall and tower. Repairs and or replacements will follow the plan approved by Maryland Historic Trust which holds an easement. The work will address the condition of the roof and shingles, add gutters, storm panels for windows, repair/replace doors, replace bathroom fixtures and water fountain, add bottle filling station, replace lighting, and furnish the ranger offices and exhibit area. Simply, it will be a fresher, stronger version of itself. 

If you have questions or concerns about the rehabilitation project, please contact DPW Project Manager Alejandro Anvari at (410) 222-7556 / [email protected] or Program Specialist Dawn Thomas at (410) 222-2867 / [email protected].
