The photo above is captioned “Original Lykens Station,” Lykens, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. However, according to the maps, the 1858 station was said to be about one block east of Market Street which which would not be where this pictured station was located. An addition was constructed to the station shown in the picture, thus creating the larger station which is still standing in Lykens. Note the stone building at the right-center of the picture, which has been identified as a Blacksmith Shop, and the Water Tower, which was located just to the left and behind the Blacksmith Shop. Probably, these three structures were the ones used during the Civil War.
Corrections and additional information should be added as comments to this post.
