Port Murray Post Office and Abandoned Train Station | Mansfield Township, New Jersey

Port Murray train station



Port Murray has a post office that is . . . a trailer. 


What is more interesting is what is behind the post office/trailer - an old caboose and abandoned train station. 

 

Port Murray, which is a section of Mansfield Township,  was an important railroad stop in the 1800s in this part of rural Warren County, New Jersey. 

 

This, in addition to the Morris Canal, brought industry to this remote area. The station was on the Morris and Essex Railroad, about 67 miles from New York City.

 

In 1996, the Port Murray Historic District was listed on The National Register of Historic Places. You can read more about it here.
