Kelly's Corners Railroad Station

Kelly's Corners Station, MP 51.4 on the Ulster and Delaware Railroad, served a rural farming community, which there were plenty of in Delaware County. The station was located north of Kelly's Corners between New York State Route 30 and the railroad tracks, just opposite the cemetery. When it was first built, it was nothing but a board-and-batten flag stop and a place for local farmers to drop off milk. It was soon replaced with a new station, which was a few hundred feet away, but the new station never made much business, and it became a flag stop again in the 1920s.

In addition to the station, the railroad also maintained a section house and a coal pocket here.

Two creameries were located in Kelly's Corners. One was near the present day crossing of Route 30, and the other, the "Eureka Creamery" was located on the opposite side of the valley from the station. Eureka Creamery moved milk cans back and forth from the U&D using a push cart which ran on tracks set on a trestle running from the station, across the river and into the creamery.By the 1950s the station had been moved across the highway and sat in front of the cemetery. When New York State rebuilt Route 30 in the 1960s they razed the station along with several other houses and barns in the area.
