The station was built in 1905 when Gouldsboro was originally called Sand Cut—named by the railroad workers for the abundance of sand that was found while constructing the railroad tracks, according to visitnepa.org.
Later, the town was renamed “Gouldsboro,” after Jay Gould, an infamous robber baron who built a tannery in the area in 1856. He closed the tannery in 1861 and moved into the business of monopolizing railroads of the west.
The station houses a museum, gift shop, covered pavilion and restrooms—all handicapped-accessible. Gouldsboro is a cash-only station and venue, with no ATM available.
Tickets cost $6 for adults and kids over the age of 5 and $1 for kids aged 5 and under. Tickets can be purchased at www.recreation.gov.
