Boston Mill[1] is a Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad train station in Boston Township, Ohio, with a street address in Peninsula, Ohio. It is located at the intersection of Riverview Road and Boston Mills Road in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

History[edit]

Boston Mill in 1975

Initially a stop on the Valley Railway, trains began regular service at Boston in 1880 as a flag stop.[2] The station building was moved to Peninsula in 1968, becoming the Peninsula Depot.[3] A new station was constructed by the National Park Service south of the old depot location to serve the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.[3]
