History details and disputes
Here's what we get from the Vince Seyfried book "The Long Island Rail Road: A Comprehensive History: Part Six - The Golden Age 1881-1900";
"In the summer of 1869 Charlick sought to buy land around Love Lane from M. Wells, operator of a local saloon and owner of all the land on both sides of the track. Wells refused to sell, for the people would then wait in the station instead of spending money in his saloon. Charlick then bought land at Wickham Avenue two blocks eastward. On September 13, 1869, trains ceased to stop at the former Love Lane stopping place and began to stop at Wickham Avenue. Charles Robinson was contractor for the depot and freight house on the north side of the track, both of which were probably built in 1870. Depot photographed by Brainerd in 1878."
