The old train depot in Noxen was listed recently as an endangered historic property, but that could be a good thing.

Paul Lumia, executive director of the North Branch Land Trust, is hopeful the structure can be rehabilitated and believes the at-risk listing will bring attention to the plight of the station.

“It’s definitely beneficial (being on the list) because from that, we’re hoping to get some donations or manpower help,” Lumia said.

The former Lehigh Valley Railroad Depot, which stands along state Route 3002 (Stull Road) and Bowman’s Creek, is among 10 statewide endangered resources noted in ‘Pennsylvania At Risk,’ an annual list released recently that was compiled by the non-profit group, Preservation Pennsylvania.
