1st Depot Opened: c. 1895-1897 as “Melville” on NW. side of Wellwood Avenue.
   Listed on timetables as flag stop. Then as “Pinelawn (Melville)” in timetable of June, 1898. 
   Listed as “Pinelawn” in timetable of 1899.
2nd Depot Built: 1915, Closed: 1925 and relocated to S.E. side of Wellwood Avenue. 
   Opened at new location: 1925. Agency closed: 19 ? . 
   Greatly remodeled: 6/79 and reopened as shelter only.

Memorial Day when the ticket office was manned (only on that 1 day each year).  I tried to get assigned to sell tickets there but the job was (as I recall) covered by the Farmingdale job on an OT basis and wasn't available to extra clerks.

  The station waiting room was kept open year-round and, amazingly, there was no damage or graffiti (at least in the mid-60's).  No heat in winter, however.  The baggage room was used by the MOW guys to store stuff.
