At Yazoo, we are proud to support the communities in which we operate, including the landmark treasures like New Oxford Train Station Museum. As part of the “All Aboard!” fundraiser, conducted by the New Oxford Area Historical Society, our contribution helped to purchase the land to keep the station in its original place. In recognition of the support received from this campaign, the NOAHS organized a plaque unveiling celebration as part of the premiere event in their “Resume in 22” schedule of programs. “Resume in 22” is the NOAHS organization’s efforts to restart, rebuild, and once again move forward with curated programs that celebrate the history and heritage of New Oxford and its neighboring communities. The society, in conjunction with the Borough of New Oxford, has undertaken a community campaign to raise funds to purchase the Borough’s beloved history railroad property.
In a kind gesture by the incredible volunteers who help support and give guided tours of the train station, they invited us on a private tour of the Train Station. We were taken on a journey through stories from the train station’s historical past as a passenger station built for the Western Maryland Railroad in 1892, and how crews would do their jobs and signal each other with whistles. We also learned about items like the original desk, ticket windows, phones, waiting rooms, whistles, lamps and lights, antique toys, operating model trains, and equipment used on the local and national lines.
Yazoo Mills has been a proud supporter of many fundraising events in New Oxford for many years. We recognize the importance the historic train station is to the community, which is why we donated $1,000 to the All Aboard! campaign. With our contribution, as well as many other local companies, the campaign was able to reach its goal of $40,000 in order to purchase the land which preserves the train station. We are proud to support the campaign and excited to watch them continue to preserve the train station.
