B and O Office- The white building, located to the left of the Masonic Building, was the office of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad after the depot was demolished on where the basketball court is now located. The track ran just below the hillside heading east toward state Routes 93 and 155 leading to the Claycraft Brick plant. Heading west the railroad line made its way through the Bristol Tunnel to points in northern Perry County and beyond. The train would have to back into Shawnee because there was no turntable. The location of the former office helps provide further evidence that Shawnee was an important regional hub for transportation, commerce, and culture. The structure also housed a church and doctor's office at one point throughout its history.
