SHARPSBURG - The Town of Sharpsburg will take over Antietam Station near town and review possible uses for it, including possible restoration for use for model railroad displays.
Town Council members voted 4-2 on Monday night to take over the train station from the Washington County Commissioners at no cost.
The commissioners believe the town could make better use of the building, said Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook.
"We want to protect the station," said Town Councilwoman Denise Troxell.
The building has been vacant for at least six years.
Troxell suggested setting up a committee to review the 40 proposals the county received from various groups interested in the property.
