Significance: East Roundhouse is a building in the former locomotive repair and machine shops erected by the B&O in Martinsburg beginning in 1849. Destroyed by the Confederate troops in 1861, the existing shops date from 1866 and later. Originally identical to the West Roundhouse, the building had its cast-iron frame replaced by roof-trusses of heavy timber in 1927.
