The building is no longer being used as a railway station (three or four freight trains come through Rivertown each day; no passenger trains). The larger spaces in the building are being used (underutilized?) as an antiques store. Other areas are vacant.
Market value of this property as is: $230,000
Size of lower floor: 44 ft. x 46 ft. plus towers
Size of upper floor: 40 ft. x 37 ft. plus towers
Current income of the ground floor ($14/sq.ft./year)
