The train station is the keystone of a multifaceted push for connectivity between communities within the airport corridor.

Our goal is to completely restore this historic landmark, and transform it into a multi-use events center and café, specifically acting as a waystation for bicycle tourists and other active users of the Ohio River Greenway Trail, which will run across 3rd Street, directly in front of the train station. 

But we cannot achieve our goals alone. Find out how you can help.

The train station is a featured attraction in the new Walk Coraopolis program. We even have our own sign along the trail! Learn more about this great program here.

On June 22, 2017, Coraopolis History Archive was invited to participate in the Coraopolis Memorial Library's "Build a Better World" Lecture Series through the Carnegie Library System. We have added the presentation about the architectural features of our station to the top of the architecture page. The slide-show presentation discussing the history of our station is available right here:

 

On July 15, 2016, The Allegheny Foundation has awarded the Coraopolis Community Development Foundation a $290,000 grant to help renovate the historic Coraopolis train station. “We are thrilled that the work we launched last fall can continue, and are incredibly grateful to the Allegheny Foundation for this gift, as well as the hundreds of donors who have stepped forward to support,” said Shawn Reed, the project’s chairman. “We continue to believe that the station will be a centerpiece in the ongoing development of this great little town.”

Through the Ohio River Trail Project's Bicycle Parking Program, the Coraopolis Train Station has received five 'inverted-U' bike racks to form a bicycle corral on a sidewalk outside the station. We are so grateful for their generosity!

The Trail Town Program has featured our project on their website! The Trail Town Program works in small and rural towns across western Pennsylvania and western Maryland, focusing on community and economic development around trail tourism and outdoor recreation.

We were previously featured on Pittsburgh's own NPR News Station, WESA 90.5 FM Essential Pittsburgh.  Marcus Charleston put together this fantastic segment, which you can listen to below, or access on their website.
