The Village of Rouses Point and the Rouses Point-Champlain Historical Society restored the historic 1889 Romanesque brick and stone train station building (the former D & H Railroad Station).  The Village of Rouses Point purchased the former D & H Railroad Station from the Delaware and Hudson Railway in 2002 for $5,000.  The restored building was renamed the Rouses Point History and Welcome Center.  Restoration was made possible from $832,500 federal stimulus funding; $95,000 secured by Rep. John McHugh; fundraising and donations by several residents, businesses and organizations; various grants awarded to the Village of Rouses Point; a $35,000 donation by the Rouses Point-Champlain Historical Society and many hours of volunteer labor.
