The station was built in 1873, and is one of the few survivors of the many picturesque county stations built along the Metropolitan Branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and other 19th-century American railroads. The architect was E. Francis Baldwin, who also designed the adjoining freight house, built in 1887. The station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 as the Rockville Railroad Station. It continued to serve as an Amtrak and commuter station until 1981, when the 400-ton station was moved about 50 meters to the south to make way for the Rockville Metro station which replaced it.
