Bangor and Aroostook Railroad station, Searsport, ca. 1990

Contributed by Oakfield Historical Society


The Bangor and Aroostook Railroad built a line to Searsport in the early 1900s in order to providing access to a seaport without having to share revenue with Maine Central Railroad.

With its own seaport, the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad was also able to ship the coal it needed to fuel its engines more economically.

The station in Searsport is one of three remaining wooden Bangor and Aroostook stations. The other two are in Oakfield and Fort Kent.
