Berkeley Springs Depot Master Plan
As part of a Department of Highways grant, Mills Group designed a master plan for the adaptive reuse of the historic railyard at Berkeley Springs, WV. Utilizing the train depot as a new trailhead for a new rail-trail planned to connect to Berkeley Springs, the master plan includes restrooms and trail amenities along with parking and a spacious public event area. A new covered marketplace pavilion for music performances and events, along with sight and sound screening from the adjacent highway, illustrate the potential of the site as a nexus of community activity. The plan also incorporates a fountain modeled after a railroad water stop, a bioswale, and water retention area, paying homage to the history of water in Berkeley Springs. Mills Group created a promotional simulation video illustrating the future of the site for fundraising and promotional purposes.
