We hosted a special event with the Madeira Historical Society to unveil the restored Baltimore & Ohio RR scale from the Madeira Train Depot. The 116-year-old scale was used at the depot for 60 years and was recently  restored by local Madeira resident Dave Bulman. The scale is on display at  its permanent home at the Miller House of the Madeira Historical Society. 

Download a copy of the presentation of the restoration made by Dave Bulman.

Depot Barbecue is 150 years in the making. The historic Madeira Train Depot was built in 1872, and it quickly became the community gathering place. Like many such train stations in small town America, the Depot no doubt hosted many community barbecues.

We honor that historic marriage of railroads and barbecue with Depot Barbecue. Here you will find favorite barbecue staples, from award-winning smoked meats, creamy macaroni & cheese and baked beans with bacon to vegetarian and lighter dishes to decadent desserts and soft-serve ice cream.  Come in for a craft beer, pulled pork sandwich and cole slaw and you might find your toe tapping to blues, bluegrass or big band music.

All aboard!
