Renovations to Old Buzzards Bay Train Station Complete

BUZZARDS BAY – The old train station visitors’ center on the West End of Main Street looks a lot different than it did earlier this year.

A $120,000 renovation project recently wrapped up, after crews installed a new custom service desk depicting the topography of the canal, new murals, paintings of old photographs and new bathrooms.

The funding came from community preservation act reserves as part of a larger effort to attract business investors to downtown.

President and CEO of the Cape Cod Canal Region Chamber of Commerce Marie Oliva said now that the chamber has invested in the work, she hopes business owners will do the same.

“We’re making a difference in the community, and we are hoping business owners will recognize that and invest in the downtown area,” Oliva said.

The also installed new brochure wracks and furniture loyal to the building’s early 1900s origins.

Oliva said the building welcomes around 25,000 people each year, and hopes that additional funding for work on the exterior will be made available in the future.

Meanwhile, work continues on another project next door at the Buzzards Bay Park, where crews will install a new walkway and irrigation systems.

Work on that project began in September.
