B&O Railroad

Founded in 1827 (its cornerstone was laid the following year by Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence), the B&O was long one of the nation's premier railroads. Though the railroad itself has largely disappeared, its legacy remains strong in Baltimore's B&O Railroad Museum, the magnificent B&O Railroad building on Charles Street (now home to the high-class Hotel Monaco) and, let us not forget, a key Monopoly property.
