GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Karin Johnson remembers bringing her dog to a rabies clinic at the old train station shortly after moving to Greencastle nine years ago.
Gloria Rivellino went there for a bake sale soon after she moved to town five years ago.
Both women marveled at the station's architecture and historic significance. Today they are on the board of the Greencastle-Antrim Organized Youth Foundation, which owns the 100-year-old station on Jefferson Street.
Johnson is president of the foundation and Rivellino is treasurer. There are seven other members.
Greencastle-Antrim Organized Youth was set up around 1980 to buy the station from the foundation that operates the Jerome R. King Playground in Greencastle. The playground foundation bought the station from the railroad 20 years earlier, said John Kinney, 80, one of the early organizers of the effort to save the station.
The station opened in 1908 to serve those using the Cumberland Valley Railroad. That railroad was taken over by the Pennsylvania Railroad and then by Conrail, Johnson said.
