The Mount Clare Shops is the oldest railroad manufacturing complex in the United States, located in Baltimore, Maryland. It was founded by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1829. Mt. Clare was the site of many inventions and innovations in railroad technology. It is presently the site of the B&O Railroad Museum. The museum and Mt. Clare station were designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961. The Mount Clare site was a portion of an estate owned by Charles Carroll, a distant cousin of Charles Carroll of Carrollton. The initial operations of the B&O used horsecars, and the earliest facilities on the Mt. Clare site included a depot and stables for horses. This was one of the earliest passenger stations in the United States.show more
