There was an earlier station here that predated the one that is still standing. Maps from 1875 show a station at the same location (on the east side of the tracks on the north side of National Road). Either that, or the existing station is older than originally thought.
Newark This station was just to the NE of the corner of South 1st Street and Yearly Street (formerly Franklin Street) between the tracks (GPS: 40.05712,-82.397126). It was built in 1878 and demolished 1989. According to the B&O 1888 Annual Report the waiting room was enlarged that year and a freight transfer shed was added.
Newark This freight station was on the corner of North Canal Street (now market) and South 1st Street. (GPS: 40.057416,-82.398775)
Newark The freight station was just west of the passenger station on Walnut Street across 3rd Street (GPS: 40.055094,-82.401621). It was built in 1882.
Newark The first station here was a house owned by Lucius Smith, a wealthy pioneer citizen of Newark. This house was located on South 3rd Street on the south side of the tracks (according to "Centennial History of the City of Newark and Licking County, Ohio" by Edwin M. P. Brister published in 1909).

Utica The first B&O station here, according to maps from 1875, was a combination depot/warehouse that was near the corner of Maple Street and North Main Street. (GPS: 40.238875,-82.451888)
Vanatta Town was originally called "Vanattasburg."
Weiant There was a station that served the workers at the Weiant Greenhouses near Newark. I am unsure whether it was a RR station or an interurban line. Does anyone know for sure?
