Ashmont Station, 1890s to 1920s
Ashmont Station
Click image for more information
 In the late 1890s a new Ashmont train station was built on the west side of the train tracks on the land where the land is today. Earlier, the station was on the north side of Peabody Square in the v between Dorchester Avenue and Talbot Avenue. The station in the illustration today is the one that served Ashmont from the late 1890s until the change-over to rapid transit in the late 1920s, when a brick headhouse was placed approximately where the headhouse is today.

 The site of the station in the illustration today had been the site of the All Saints Episcopal Church, but when the new church building opened on Ashmont Street, the church no longer needed the land where their former wooden building stood on Dorchester Avenue.
