The public is invited to attend and light refreshments will follow in the station building.

The purchase of the historical Lake Hopatcong Train Station, in the fall of 2014, turned the page on an exciting new chapter for the Lake Hopatcong Foundation and the entire lake region.

Morris County has had a historic site marker program in place since 1975. Sites honored with markers weave together the threads of Morris County’s history from the colonial era through the twentieth century.

The Lake Hopatcong Station opened on May 28, 1911, built as part of the grand Lackawanna Cut-Off project. It was designed as a showcase for the Lackawanna Railroad and was an impressive gateway to the popular summer resort of Lake Hopatcong and its hotels and cottages. More than a hundred years after its construction, the station now serves as the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Environmental & Cultural Center.
