President Street Station

Opened by the Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore Railroad in 1850 (which makes it the oldest surviving big-city passenger station in the U.S.), the station earned its place in history in 1861, when Union troops heading from it to the B&O's Camden Station, were set upon by local Southern sympathizers, resulting in the first bloodshed of the American Civil War.
