The station was built in 1905 when Gouldsboro was originally called Sand Cut, named by the railroad workers for the abundance of sand that was found while constructing the railroad tracks. Later, our town was renamed Gouldsboro after Jay Gould, an infamous robber baron who built a tannery in this area in 1856, later closing it in 1861 and moving into the business of monopolizing railroads of the west.

Returning train ride will last approximately 1 hour; departing Gouldsboro at 2 p.m. and arriving in Steamtown at 3 p.m.
