“memories alongside the rail”
If you need a reason to visit historic Sykesville, Baldwin's Station can offer you more than a few. Housed in the town's original railroad station, the restaurant has been the recipient of numerous awards and favorable press since its creation by owner Stewart Dearie in August 1997. Baldwin's delivers outstanding entrees, superb service, and delightful desserts. The highly regarded menu consisting of freshwater fish, Black Angus beef and New American cuisine is prepared and delivered with a flare all their own. However, the food at Baldwin's Station is just one aspect of the charm. "Sykesville may be a small town, but it's not a sleepy one" says Mayor Jonathan Herman. The historic, shop filled main street is as pretty as you're likely to find. The 1883 railroad station is the town's most important structure and is the anchor to its revitalization. Lovingly restored by the town of Sykesville and a grant from the Maryland Historic Trust, named after the renowned architect who designed it, Baldwin's Station is listed in The National Register of Historic Places. The architect's sense of humor is apparent in the depot's chimneys, which are a brick version of an 1880's locomotive; a charming little joke atop a Queen Anne style building. With original jewel-toned stained glass windows, wrap-around deck, exposed brick, 20-foot ceilings and Victorian appointments, the station is delightful both inside and out.
