WM's Howardville Freight and Waiting Shed. The building behind the waiting shed was known as the Milford Grocery and butcher shop. The Burn's Family owned the store and lived up stairs. Jack Brown lived 3/4 a mile down Milford Mill Road and says, "as kids we would buy a soda at the store and watch trains roll by on the WM. Many times east bounds would stop just passed the crossing while waiting to proceed to Port Covington. The crews were very friendly and often invited us on board to see the caboose".
