The revitalization of Sykesville’s 1884 B&O depot got its green light, officials said Tuesday, as a local business has agreed to donate the station to the town.

The town’s been trying for 14 years to secure the station,” said Mayor Lloyd R. Helt Jr. “Today, we have it”

Actually, the town had it Thursday. Farm and Home Services Inc. agreed then to donate the station and restore the mill near the property. Details of the agreement with Farm and Home, a town farm, hardware and home products business, were not revealed until Tuesday’s press conference.
