WELCOMING YOU TO THE ROUNDHOUSE

Martinsburg Roundhouse | 100 Liberty Street | Martinsburg | West Virginia

The Center includes 13 acres with three B&O Railroad shop buildings. The main attraction is the completely enclosed 1866 cast iron frame Roundhouse. It is situated along 1,000 feet of the Tuscarora Creek. The B & O Railroad shops operated until 1988. This site was active early in the Civil War and was the site of the first National Labor Strike of 1877.

Saturday tours are from 10 AM - 4 PM, $5 per adult, $3 for students and children under 5 yrs are free. Private tours can be arranged. Cost is $35 for two and $5 for each additional person. Please call the Visitors Center.

The Roundhouse will be closed for the Winter Season after 3 PM on the last Saturday in October. We plan on reopening on the first Saturday in April. Please call The Roundhouse at 304-260-4141 for information.

FRIENDS OF THE ROUNDHOUSE
(Volunteer)

The Friends of The Roundhouse are a vital part that keeps this beautiful, historic facility running smoothly. We can always welcome more tour guides, event committee members, or maybe help with maintenance of grounds or building. Perhaps helping with a train layout or working our company store is more for you. We are open to new ideas. Consider joining our group of volunteers. You can contact Spring Giovannelli by calling 304-260-4141 press option 3. 

PHOTO GALLERY

The Roundhouse Center is known to be a wonderful site for photography. Many wedding photos, graduations, and many published scenery shots have been photographed here. 

Families have been here for Holiday photos on our caboose and the float which is in the Martinsburg Christmas parade.

Photographers love taking photos of the ruins of the old Roundhouse or of the cupola from inside the Roundhouse. Glance through the gallery at the photos from the past and present.

RENTAL INFO.

Though still a bit rustic, the historic Roundhouse can be rented for many different types of events. A little imagination and you can hold your event where “Stonewall” Jackson started his raid in 1861 or where the first labor strike in America was held. Or in modern days, the site of filming for several mini-series and weddings.

Tables and chairs are available and you are welcome to bring your own food or caterer. One or all 3 buildings can be rented.

To inquire about event rental information, please contact Spring Giovannelli at 304-260-4141 press option 3 to schedule an appointment.
