Notes
Survey number HAER MD-10
National Register Number: 73002191
Significance: When it opened in 1896, the Mount Royal Station was one of the best examples of the harmonious blending of engineering and aesthetic values in an urban environment. Sited at the north end of the Howard Street Tunnel, entirely within the open cut between it and the Mount Royal Tunnel, it was both unobtrusive and convenient. The shelter provided by this below-grade site made the Mount Royal Depot a hospitable embarkation point in foul weather. The city of Baltimore used the depot as its official welcoming point to greet distinguished visitors, including several presidents, British Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald, Cardinal Gibbons, and Queen Marie of Romania.
