Notes About Existing Stations...

Sullivan (B&O) - Approx 1.5 miles north of Sullivan, Ohio on S.R. 58. Has been converted to a house. This station was the first built on the original Akron & Chicago Jct. (B&O) line from Akron to Willard. The line once ran several hundred feet south of the present line in Sullivan. The station was moved north when the line was changed to avoid a significant grade between Sullivan and Lodi, Ohio. The station is now a house and may be difficult to identify. It is the only known railroad station still in existence in Ashland County.
