The Village of Rouses Point purchased the former D & H Railroad Station from Delaware & Hudson Railway in 2002 for $5,000. The restored building has been named 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.
