Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Station, Oakland is a historic railroad station located at Oakland, Garrett County, Maryland. It is a large brick structure with a two-story central section and one-story wings extending from each end along the railroad tracks. It was designed by Baldwin and Pennington, and built in 1884 by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad to support the development of Oakland and Garrett County as a resort area. It is one of the finest remaining examples in Maryland of a Queen Anne style railroad station.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1] Nevertheless it was revived for service on Amtrak's Shenandoah between 1976 and 1981.
