Friends of the Furness Railroad District
Welcome to the official home of Friends of the Furness Railroad District (FFRD). Since 2006, FFRD has been dedicated to preserving and promoting the value and history of the Wilmington Train Station and nearby buildings designed by Frank Furness. We are also interested in the rich heritage of Wilmington, Delaware and the role that railroads and the Christina riverfront have played in its development.
FFRD looks to encourage genuine excitement and enthusiasm in the local community by recognizing the unique and historic value of the Wilmington Railroad Station (1907-1908) and the cluster of Frank Furness railroad architecture at the Riverfront. We have, and will continue to provide a series of events and educational promotions that extend our message to an ever widening circle of school age children and the public at large.
FFRD is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, governed by a Board of Directors consisting of public, private and nonprofit representatives.
